Genome editing using CRISPR has been identified as one breakthrough technology in recent research. Today, it is difficult to open a journal or a newspaper without reading about the application of CRISPR gene editing technology to basic research, public health, therapeutics or diagnostics. Although some problems of CRISPR remain to be solved, such as bio-safety and ethical issues, it may change people’s futures. This book is to meet the needs of basic molecular biochemists, pharmacologists, medical students, clinical practitioners and scientists, as well as a broad spectrum of readers who wish to understand the advances in research and applications of CRISPR. The contributing authors are basic scientists as well as students who major in biochemistry and pharmacology. The book presents the current research in the CRISPR model, focusing on its advances and applications. Topics discussed in this compilation include: Targeting of hepatic diseases using CRISPR; applications and advances of CRISPR in animal models; gene targeting on the Cyp2c Locus in rats via CRISPR; applications of CRISPR for therapy in human genetic diseases; utilization of CRISPR in gene function and drug target validation; applications of CRISPR in plant genome editing; and genome editing on human embryos using CRISPR.
