Chinese scientists have developed a safe tool for editing genes

Now the so-called genetic scissors are used for editing genes, when scientists using

CRISPR tools embed the necessary changes in the genes. At the same time, the success rate of using CRISPR today is 1%.

The tool proposed by Chinese scientists is called ABE (F148A). It allows you to edit genes with greater accuracy and practically does not damage RNA.

According to scientists, ABE (F148A) can be used to treat severe rare diseases such as thalassemia, macular degeneration and hereditary deafness.

Earlier, an international group of geneticists introduced a new technology for introducing modified genes into DNA without cutting, the success of which is 80%.

"High-tech" understood in detail why almost all countries forbid experiments with editing genes in humans, as well as how the He experiment influenced all of world science.
