Nonviral nanoparticles carry CRISPR to most successful gene edits ever

Scientists at MIT have developed a new way to carry the CRISPR gene-editing tool to the target area of the genome. Normally the system uses harmless viruses, but that means patients can develop resistance to the treatment. So the new study involving mice has used nanoparticles instead, leading to what the team claims is the best success rate for the technique in adult animals…
