CRISPR” stands for Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats, which are the hallmark of a bacterial defense system which forms the basis for the popular CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing technology.

 

Crispr/cas9 is basically a gene editing tool which enable us to insert or remove gene effectively.​

 

The CRISPR/Cas9 system has been used to achieve efficient genome editing in a variety of species and cell types, including human cell lines, bacteria, zebrafish, yeast, mouse, fruit fly, roundworm, rat, rabbit, common crops, pig, and monkey.

 

Applications:

 

1.Cure Diseases (Like HIV, Cancer, Malaria, Sickle Cell Anemia)

2.Using CRISPR to reverse retinitis pigmentosa and restore visual function

3.It helps to alleviate Depression

4.CRISPR successfully lowers Cholesterol in Mice

5.partially restores vision in blind animals

6.CRISPR stores a Movie into the DNA of Bacteria

CRISPR has taken our gene editing abilities to new heights, but I think it's error rate is still too high for it to be used to make genetically engineered humans that are significantly better than average. We'll have to wait for whatever the successor to CRISPR is. 

 

If you want to imagine what is ultimately possible, consider what our most extraordinary humans are currently like, and imagine that being the future "average."
