Application of CRISPR/Cas-based Technology

CRISPR/Cas-based gene editing has recently emerged as a versatile technology for inducing precise genetic alterations in a number of different species, including mice and rats. Given the importance of genetically engineered mice in modeling human disease, the power of CRISPR has the potential to revolutionize the field of custom rodent model generation and facilitate biomedical research.
