"For better or for worse, CRISPR–Cas9 is transforming biology," the editors of Nature Genetics observe in the current issue. "We are now at the dawn of the gene-editing age." The amazing CRISPR gene-editing technology, which has been likened to a genetic word processor, allows researchers to make specific changes ranging from tweaking a single DNA base pair to revising whole paragraphs of genetic information.
