CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Editas Medicine, a transformative genome editing company, today announced new published research from company co-founder J. Keith Joung, M.D., Ph.D., demonstrating the ability of truncated guide RNAs (tru-gRNAs) to increase the specificity of the novel genome editing technology CRISPR (clustered, regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats)/Cas9 (CRISPR-associated protein 9). This approach has the potential to further refine Editas' CRISPR/Cas9 technology and enhance the company’s ability to knock-out, knock-down or selectively edit disease-causing genes. The paper was published in the current online edition of Nature Biotechnology1 and co-authored by Dr. Joung, who is associate chief of pathology for research and an associate pathologist at Massachusetts General Hospital and associate professor of pathology at Harvard Medical School.
