PART 1: CRISPR-Cas9 Technology

It all started with the hypothesis in 2006 that a virus could be killed by targeting the genome of the virus by using protein and RNA competent.  You will find here the sources to understand in detail where the CRISPR-Cas9 comes from.

Emmanuelle Charpentier and Jennifer Doudna won the 2020 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for their groundbreaking work on CRISPR technology, putting to rest years of speculation around who would win this prestigious award for the development of gene-editing tool.

INTRODUCTION (16min)

Geneticist Jennifer Doudna co-invented with Emmanuelle Charpentier a groundbreaking new technology for editing genes, called CRISPR-Cas9. In this TED video, Jennifer explains all you need to know: https://youtu.be/TdBAHexVYzc
