Scientists successfully use CRISPR to fix a genetic mutation causing Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy disease

Scientists for the first time have successfully repaired a genetic mutation in human embryos by using a gene-editing tool called CRISPR-Cas9. It has freed embryos of faulty DNA that causes deadly hereditary heart disease. It potentially opens the door to preventing 10,000 disorders that are passed down the generations. Key Facts Using CRISPR-Cas9 gene-editing technology, ..
