Some of us may have seen the recent Netflix documentary “Unnatural Selection” which delves into the high-tech world of genetic alteration. Indeed, the discovery of gene editing techniques using CRISPR-Cas in the 90s was a landmark human achievement. To put in simply, it’s a natural defense mechanism inherent to bacteria which splice invading DNA, and was harnessed by bio-engineers for use in “editing out” target unwanted genes in people — with obvious potential uses in disease prevention. Possible good opportunities here for aspiring biotech entrepreneurs.
