  • Introduction

    Genome editing techniques have been under development for several years. Nevertheless, the recent advent of the CRISPR/Cas9 system and its derivatives has enabled scientists to perform genetic manipulations with considerable ease. The considerable straightforwardness of operating the CRISPR/Cas9 system allowed studying a much greater variety of genomic locations, as well as it enabled researchers to seek cure for a previously considered uncurable diseases, i.e. genetic diseases. Several clinical tests and particular advancements on health-related basic research are being currently performed. Genome editing has enormous curing potential for inherited diseases, in addition to cancers and further diagnostic purposes.

    Aims and Scope:

    1. Genome editing techniques
    2. Improvement in in vivo transfer of genetic material
    3. Clinical directed basic research
    4. Clinical and pre-clinical protocols
