Doudna Lab: New Understanding of CRISPR-Cas9 Tool Could Improve Genome Editing

Out today in Science Magazine, a recent collaboration between MCB Professor of Biochemistry, Biophysics and Structural Biology Jennifer Doudna and David Liu of the Broad Institute could lead to improved gene editing. Read the Berkeley News story here.
