Food For Thought: Technologies Transforming The Food Supply Chain

These five innovations are taking root in Asia to make the food supply chain speedier and more sustainable.

The Future Of Food In Singapore

To achieve 30 percent local food production by 2030, Singapore’s most innovative minds are turning to genome editing, artificial intelligence and even microalgae-based proteins.

Peering Into The CRISPR Crystal Ball

CRISPR has come a long way since it burst into the public imagination in the last decade. Here’s a glimpse of the top trends in gene editing for 2020 and beyond.

On The Cusp Of CRISPR

When Yoshizumi Ishino first encountered in 1986 the mysterious sequences that would later come to be known as CRISPR, he was as far away from the present day as he was to the discovery of the double helix. Here is the story of what has happened since then.

CRISPR Takes Center Stage

It’s been nearly a decade since CRISPR captured public imagination. As the technology matures, we’ve rounded up some of CRISPR’s most interesting use cases to emerge in recent years.

CRISPR’ed Mouse Mimics COVID-19 In Humans

Scientists have used gene editing to create mice expressing human ACE2, the receptor used by SARS-CoV-2 to enter cells.

Cultivating CRISPR For Crops

For gene editing technologies like CRISPR to make a positive impact on agriculture, they must be embraced by companies both big and small. Corteva Agriscience is encouraging open innovation to help bridge the gap.

CRISPR Helps Find Alzheimer’s-Linked Protein

Researchers have used a CRISPR-based genetic screen to identify a new gene that could regulate the development of Alzheimer’s disease.

A Tool To Validate The Safety Of Gene Editing Systems

A China-led research collaboration has resulted in a technique to identify single nucleotide variations, insertions and deletions potentially introduced by gene editors like CRISPR-Cas9.

Compacting The Yeast Genome Into A Single Chromosome

Using the CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing system, scientists in China have created single-chromosome yeast to study the evolutionary benefits or drawbacks of having multiple chromosomes.
