Last night was SUCH A TREAT 🍬 Dr. Jennifer Doudna, scientist who co-invented CRISPR genome editing technology came to ASU and gave a lecture 🧬 I recently showed her @ted talk to my students which is a few years old so it was cool to hear about recent advancements and what her lab is currently working on. One thing she shared which is super exciting is using CRISPR not just for genome editing but for gene detection. If you create an RNA guide for a specific gene of interest and add a fluorescent tag, you can quickly and inexpensively detect if a person has a gene of interest... possibly even specific types of cancer. This.is.so.cool 👏🏼 I’m so glad I got to attend! #sciencerocks#scienceteacher#crispr#jenniferdoudna#asu#iteachscience#iteachhighschool#geneediting#geneticengineering

These are the “reawakened” cells of a woolly mammoth that lived 28,000 years ago
These are the “reawakened” cells of a woolly mammoth that lived 28,000 years ago. The cells were taken from a young female mammoth that was discovered in 2010 in the remote frozen north of Siberia. The mammoth, named “Yuka” by scientists, was entombed in a layer of permafrost, which kept many of her soft tissues intact. A few of her cells were placed into mouse ovarian cells in order to incubate them. Although the cells were not able to fully divide, they did complete a few of the precursor steps to cell division.

Recently developed gene editing tools enable plant scientists to figure out the functions of myriad plant genes. While these studies could lead to crops with improved traits, researchers first need a good way to keep track of the large amounts of resulting data. To meet this need, researchers at BTI developed the Plant Genome Editing Database.

As a world first, this story continues to cause outrage. A Chinese Prof. has used CRISPR to genetically alter twin girls so they wouldn't get HIV. He recruited couples which had HIV-positive fathers and used CRISPR gene editing which allows scientists to scan the entire genome for "errors", then using molecular scissors to cut both strands of DNA and delete, insert and repair the strand. Meaning the faulty gene no longer exists in that person and therefore can live their life disease free. Currently, this practice for gene editing on human embryos remains illegal across the world. Why? Because it's considered re-engineering the human species, and the world is not prepared for that. It may not be dangerous for individuals but it's dangerous for the world simply because it implies longevity, higher intelligence, and ultimately superior human beings. Pharma companies would all go bankrupt not being able to sell drugs for diseases. Truth is, if we don't begin producing super humans we're going to be taken over by robots, as AI and ML is rapidly progressing. Whether we like it or not, this is real, both superior humans and robots are coming! • • • • #CRISPR#GeneEditing#DNA#psychoalchemy#mindfulness#meditation#love#psychoanalysis#psychology#psychotherapy#alchemy#spirituality#yoga#dreams#healing#wellbeing#metaphysical#tantra#kabbalah#mystical#shamanism#spirit#soul#consciousness#HigherFrequency#vibrations#PositiveThoughts#TwinFlame#science#universe

It would be irresponsible for any scientist to conduct human gene-editing studies in people, and a central registry of research plans should be set up to ensure transparency, World Health Organization experts said on Tuesday. • After its first two-day meeting in Geneva, the WHO panel of gene editing experts - which was established in December after a Chinese scientist said he had edited the genes of twin babies - said it had agreed a framework for setting future standards. • It said a central registry of all human genome editing research was needed “in order to create an open and transparent database of ongoing work”, and asked the WHO to start setting up such a registry immediately. • “The committee will develop essential tools and guidance for all those working on this new technology to ensure maximum benefit and minimal risk to human health,” Soumya Swamanathan, the WHO’s chief scientist, said in a statement. • The WHO panel’s statement said any human gene editing work should be done for research only, should not be done in human clinical trials, and should be conducted transparently. • “It is irresponsible at this time for anyone to proceed with clinical applications of human germline genome editing.” • The committee said it aims over the next two years to produce “a comprehensive governance framework” for national, local and international authorities to ensure human genome editing science progresses within agreed ethical boundaries.

Stem cell scientists have split over the future of genetic editing of the human germline. In a commentary in Nature several leading scientists have called for a global moratorium on heritable genome editing. • However, the names of a number of prominent scientists were conspicuous by their absence on the call for a moratorium. • One of the inventors of CRISPR, the revolutionary gene-editing technique, Jennifer Doudna of the University of California, Berkeley, told STAT that she supports “strict regulation that precludes use” of germline editing until scientific, ethical, and societal issues are resolved. • “I prefer this to a ‘moratorium’ which, to me, is of indefinite length and provides no pathway toward possible responsible use.” • Similarly, Nobel laureate David Baltimore, of California Institute of Technology, Harvard Medical School Dean George Daley and Harvard biologist George Church do not want a moratorium. • They believe that it cannot be enforced; that it is unclear how long it should last; and that it is unclear who has the authority to end the it. • In fact, the scientists proposing the moratorium were by no means categorical about the fundamental question of the ethics of germline editing. “At this stage, no outcomes should be foreclosed,” they write. • They seem to feel that it could go ahead, provided that it can be justified on the grounds of safety, efficacy, benefit, and societal support.

One day soon, farmers may be able to raise food animals immune to deadly disease
One day soon, farmers may be able to raise food animals immune to deadly diseases and spare them painful but necessary procedures like horn removal. • These innovations, made possible by CRISPR and other gene-editing techniques, could cut the cost of food production, reduce antibiotic use in agriculture and dramatically improve animal welfare. But federal regulation may very well stifle these developments in the US. • In 2017, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) proposed a plan to regulate gene-edited animals as veterinary drugs under the 1938 Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, because their DNA is “intentionally altered.” • The proposal has drawn harsh criticism from animal scientists, some of whom are packing up their labs and leaving the US to avoid the FDA’s rules. Food animals, these experts say, should be regulated based on the risk they pose to human health, not the breeding method that produced them. • Alison Van Eenennaam, an extension specialist in animal biotechnology at the University of California in Davis, has been a vocal critic of the FDA’s proposal, urging the agency to reconsider its recommended gene-edited animal regulations: • "Myself and fellow academic researchers reject the idea that intentional genomic DNA alterations should be regulated as a veterinary drug in food animals, and consider that the proposed approach will thwart the development of genetic approaches by public sector researchers and small companies to use gene editing to solve zoonotic disease and animal welfare problems in the United States."

With the announcement today that Mammoth Biosciences has received the exclusive license from the University of California, Berkeley to the new CRISPR protein Cas14, the company now has the last piece of its diagnostics toolkit in place. • Cas14 is a newly discovered protein from the lab of Jennifer Doudna, a pioneer in gene-editing research and a member of the first research team to identify and unlock the power of CRISPR technology. • Doudna and Mammoth Biosciences co-founder Lucas Harrington were part of the team of researchers to identify the new Cas14 protein, which can identify single-stranded DNA. • "With the addition of this protein that is DNA binding and target single strands, it really means we can target any nucleic acid,” says Mammoth chief executive Trevor Martin. “It’s an extension of the toolbox.” • The licensing deal moves Mammoth one step closer toward its goal of low-cost, in-home molecular diagnostics for any illness. • “The idea is we want to make this test so affordable that you can imagine going down to your CVS or Walgreens so you can bring this access to molecular level information [to questions like] if my kid has strep or flu before dropping them off to school.” • With the addition of the Cas14 protein to its portfolio, Mammoth can now run even more refined tests to assess multiple aspects of a virus or bacteria that may be present.

It’s British Science Week so we thought we would share some of the amazing research that LMS researchers have already published this year. . Today we want to talk about this incredible research from the Single Molecule Imaging group & how it links with CRISPR . This group are interested in the mechanism of Cas9 and how this protein reaches any off target effects to improve on the specificity of the CRSIPR-Cas9 technology. . In this study, our resesrchers showed that by mechanically distorting the DNA, Cas9 was bound to increasingly more off target regions. . While this kind of stretching of the DNA is artificial, structural distortions of the DNA happen all the time during normal cell processes. They also found that Cas9 bound to off target sites were still cleaving the DNA which could have serious implications for gene editing technology. . The image shows a series of time lapse images of a single molecule of DNA held in place by optically trapped beads. As you distort the DNA more (from left to right), you can see more and more fluorescently tagged Cas9 binding unspecifically to the DNA . If you have any questions about this research, let us know in the comments. Or head to the #linkinbio & read the article ‘The promiscuity of Cas9’ under News . This work was performed in #collaboration with #AstraZeneca . . #mrclms#crispr#crisprcas9#singlemolecule#dna#geneediting#opticaltweezers#crisprbabies#britishscienceweek#britishscienceweek2019#bsw#bsw19#molecularbiology

Several of the world’s leading CRISPR scientists and bioethicists are calling for a global moratorium on editing human genes that can be passed on from parents to children. • In a new Nature commentary, Feng Zhang and Emmanuelle Charpentier — two discoverers of the revolutionary CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing system — along with 16 other researchers, outlined the urgent need to put a pause on the editing of sperm, eggs, and embryos to create genetically modified babies until countries agree on the best way forward. • The scientists were inspired to write the sharply worded article after it was revealed in November that a Chinese scientist, He Jiankui, defied international norms and edited the DNA of three children, Lander told Vox, ostensibly to make them resistant to HIV. • “By ‘global moratorium’, we do not mean a permanent ban,” the authors wrote. “Rather, we call for the estab­lishment of an international framework in which nations, while retaining the right to make their own decisions, voluntarily com­mit to not approve any use of clinical germline editing unless certain conditions are met.” • And in the meantime, other CRISPR research would continue, including germline editing for research that doesn’t lead to modified babies, and editing nonheritable (somatic) cells to stamp out disease. • The hope is to move the conversation beyond a focus on individual rogue actors, like He. “The real questions going forward are what decisions will countries make over the years and decades about which applications, if any, should be allowed,” Lander said. • “We want a framework in place so that our children are proud of the decisions that get made, rather than thinking society moved forward thoughtlessly.” [Julia Belluz, Vox]🌐

Snipr Biome has raised $50 million to take CRISPR-based microbiome drugs into clinical trials. The Danish biotech is using CRISPR-Cas to selectively target and kill bacteria with specific DNA sequences. • Christian Grøndahl, the CEO of Snipr, began working with his co-founders on the use of gene editing to modify or kill bacteria shortly after he left Kymab in 2015. • The work led to a series of patents on altering microbiota, for reasons including immune modulation, and a €2.6 million investment from Lundbeckfonden Emerge to support research into potential applications for the technology. • Now, Lundbeckfonden has joined with Dutch VC shop LSP to lead a $50 million series A round. The jump in funding follows a period in which Snipr has begun to validate its technology and refine its R&D strategy. • The breadth of the potential applications of the technology, which Lundbeckfonden highlighted when it made the seed investment, runs from the killing of multi-drug-resistant bacteria through to quality control in the food industry. • “We will focus initially on precision medicines for difficult-to-treat infections and precision microbiome modulation in autoimmunity and cancer,” Grøndahl said in a statement.

China could be just over a year away from clinical trials of a new gene-editing
China could be just over a year away from clinical trials of a new gene-editing therapy with an unprecedented high level of safety, according to a team of Chinese scientists involved in the research programme. • The scientists said the research, based on groundbreaking work published in the journal Science earlier this month, could help save the lives of many patients battling deadly diseases including cancer. • The new tool under development in China targets and swaps individual “letters” in the DNA with extreme precision, avoiding cuts to the strands and significantly reducing the risk of unexpected mutations. • The therapy could help cure two-thirds of the more than 50,000 diseases, including some of the deadliest cancers, caused by misplaced letters, the researchers say. • Yang Hui, who left the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and returned to China four years ago after getting a huge grant from Beijing to support original research by young talented scientists, said: “Our goal is to launch clinical trials within a year or two."

Following last year’s stellar initial public offering in October, where it raise
Following last year’s stellar initial public offering in October, where it raised $80.5 million, about $10 million over initial expectations, LogicBio Therapeutics is planning a gene-editing clinical trial in children. • LogicBio focuses on gene therapy and gene editing. Its technology came out of Stanford University and led to its GeneRide tech platform. This platform is designed to integrate corrective genes into a patient’s genome in a precise and stable way, using a natural DNA repair process called homologous recombination. • The company plans to submit an application to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to launch its first clinical trial by the end of this year. The trial would be to treat methylmalonic acidemia, a hereditary disease that leaves patients unable to metabolize certain proteins and fats. • It usually affects infants and children, and results in a range of symptoms, including muscle weakness and intellectual disabilities. Children with the disease who make it past infancy have a life expectancy of 20 to 30 years. It affects about one in 50,000 children. • Instead of using CRISPR for gene editing, LogicBio’s GeneRide platform uses two homologous gene strands to transport a corrected gene into the DNA sequence. CRISPR has some problems regarding off-target gene edits that the GeneRide system does not seem to have. • “Homologous recombination has historically had a low rate of success compared to other gene therapies,” according to Kyle Chiang, vice president of product strategy. • “LogicBio’s challenge is two-fold, because gene therapies are often administered in the liver, but infants and children’s liver cells divide and multiply much more frequently than in adults, degrading the treatment.” • But LogicBio’s approach utilizes the albumin gene, which is very active in the liver, resulting in better integration. The company also believes its approach could be used in muscles and other body sites. [credit: Mark Terry, BioSpace]🌐

I recently asked "What age do you think you will live to?". Most said 80-90.⁣ ⁣ I think you're CRAZY.⁣ ⁣ I plan to live long enough to live FOREVER.⁣ ⁣ You may think I'm the crazy one, but not if you've been paying attention to the incredible advances in medicine and technology (as I have for over a decade).⁣ ⁣ The exponential progress of technology, the genomics revolution, artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, deep learning—these and more are coming together to create a revolution in human longevity.⁣ ⁣ We WILL cure ageing.⁣ ⁣ I'll spare your the details (if you're curious, @peterhdiamandis is a great starting point).⁣ ⁣ But one concept I want to share is that of "Longevity Escape Velocity".⁣ ⁣ The idea:⁣ ⁣ There WILL come a point in the future that for every 1 year that passes, medicine will add MORE than 1 year to the average human lifespan. ⁣ ⁣ In theory, if you reach this point, death will become optional. ⁣ ⁣ Even if that day does not come in your lifetime, the exponential march of medicine continues. ⁣ ⁣ Most of your reading this today will live into your early-to-mid 100s, AT THE VERY LEAST. ⁣ ⁣ If you're 30 now, by the time you are 80, medicine will have had an extra 50 years of exponential progress. Just IMAGINE.⁣ ⁣ Knowing you'll probable live well into your 100s, if not longer, how will you live your life?⁣ ⁣ #longevity#humanlongevity#exponentialgrowth#exponentialprogress#exponentials#exponential#peterdiamandis#longevityescapevelocity#raykurzweil#thesingulatiry#medicine#exponentialtechnology#genomics#genomicrevolution#crispr#futurism#liveforever#immortality#health#healthandvitality#nanotechnology#geneediting#cureageing#ageing#forever#lifespan#lifeextension#aubreydegrey#craigventer⁣

Two emerging technologies with blockbuster biotech potential are the gene-editin
Two emerging technologies with blockbuster biotech potential are the gene-editing tool CRISPR and lab-grown or cultured meat. • CRISPR opens up the potential to precisely tweak the DNA of any organism, while lab-grown meat allows for real chicken and beef to be made in a lab from animal cells instead of from slaughter. • New Age Meats, a startup that recently hosted a public tasting of its prototype sausage, is actively using the technique, while Memphis Meats, a Silicon Valley startup whose funders include celebrities like Richard Branson, is studying the idea. • "Technologies like CRISPR allow us to safely increase the quality of our cell growth, which means we will make meat that is tastier, healthier, and more sustainable than slaughtered meat," Brian Spears, the co-founder and CEO of New Age Meats, told Business Insider. • "As a company focused on research and development, we are exploring a number of innovative techniques that will allow us to make our products better for the environment and public health, as well as more affordable and scale-able." • However, it's too early to say whether products made using the gene-editing tool would make it into its first consumer products, which the company previously estimated would hit stores by 2021 and be available in a high-end restaurant this year.

In November 2018 Chinese scientists announced that they had (unethically) edited the genes of two twin embryos, making these twin girls resistant to HIV infection. However, new data now suggests that these twin girls may also have improved intelligence as an unanticipated result of the gene edits, giving rise to the very first “superhumans”. These genetic mutations are permanent and will be passed on to future generations . . . . . #yoga#concussion#yogapants#sport#neuroscience#photography#science#medicine#diet#fitness#baby#jax#beach#cute#crispr#hiv#lgbt#CTE#geneediting#nootropics#stroke#genetics#lgbt#fitness#handsomemensclub#photography#nootropicstack#supplements#yogainspiration#science#Alzheimers#researchlab#followforfollow
