Abstract

CRISPR-Cas9 is a versatile tool for genome engineering that has revolutionized biotechnology and is poised to impact medicine. Recent advances in the identification of unique CRISPR systems, as well as the re-engineering of the Cas9 protein for expanded function, has enabled the diversification of the CRISPR genome engineering toolbox. In this review, we highlight these innovations and discuss how advances in CRISPR technology can lead to breakthroughs in the field of gene therapy.
