What does CRISPR mean?
Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeat (CRISPR) or CRISPR/Cas9, is commonly used to refer to a revolutionary gene editing technology that can edit Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) with remarkable precision. The name CRISPR refers to the unique organization of short, partially palindromic repeated DNA sequences found in the genomes of bacteria and other microorganisms.
