Genome editing

Making deliberate alterations to the DNA sequence at targeted locations in the genome. This can include deleting, inserting or replacing sections of DNA.

Several approaches are used to achieve these changes, include zinc finger nucleases (ZFNs), TALENs, CRISPR/Cas and base editing.
