Unlocking the full potential of CRISPR genome editing requires continuous innovation.

We need more options for safely and reliably delivering editing tools into agricultural crops and the parts of the human body that are harmed by mutations. The IGI is developing cross-cutting new approaches to accelerate development and delivery of therapeutics, agricultural engineering, and scientific discovery. We are building upon foundational CRISPR-Cas technologies to create more precise and powerful tools for manipulating the genome.
