The CRISPR Dispute

In the hotly patent war over the priority to the invention of the CRISPR-Cas9 system between two of the most powerful universities in the US, last week on 15 February 2017, judges at USPTO ruled in favor of the Broad Institute, MIT and declared that “there is no interference-in-fact” between the two parties. In other words that the Broad Institute will retain the exclusive rights to decide who is allowed to use this groundbreaking thereby dealing a blow to the University of California. […]

Shock & Kill- Hidden HIV Infection

The key impediment to a cure for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection is the presence of latent, HIV-infected cells, which can come back and produce new viruses when antiretroviral drug therapy is stopped. These latent, HIV-infected cells remain untouched by antiretroviral therapy and are not recognized by our immune system. […]

Forget DNA! Store Data in Your Body – CRISPR/Cas Magic

In last few years, there is quite a buzz around storing digital data into DNA and it has gained huge impetus in both research institutes and industries trying to capitalize the vast opportunities in the information technology age. In 2013 Nick Goldman team at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory have encoded audio, image, and text files into a synthesized DNA molecule about the size of a dust grain, and then retrieve the information from the DNA with 99.99 percent accuracy. […]
