The CRISPR-CAS 9 system is a unique tool that allows scientists to make precise, targeted changes to the genome by deleting, replacing or inserting parts to specific locations in the DNA sequence.

CRISPR-CAS 9 cuts time in half for genome sequencing and is more effective for researchers analyzing genomes, RNA, and proteins of various diseases.  CRISPR-CAS 9 also offers great hope certainly for the rare disease patient community, especially as it relates to future immunotherapy breakthroughs for LMS.
KNOWLEDGE IS POWER –  BE EMPOWERED!
