Genome editing: a broad perspective on a precision technology – PHG Foundation

Friday, November 22nd, 2019

Genome editing goes prime-time Genome editing was in the news again recently, following the publication of a paper that describes prime-editing, a new method of altering genetic information. Whilst more information is needed to accurately assess the true potential of this technique, prime-editing does represent another addition to the ever-growing suite of genome editing tools many of which will have an impact on treatment approaches to genetic diseases. In our latest set of policy briefings, we outline the current state of somatic genome editing in health, discussing areas of greatest progress, limitations and the evolving regulatory landscape and ethical considerations surrounding its application
