ROCKVILLE, Md., Nov. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- A better soybean. A higher-functioning yeast. An AIDS treatment. Engineered lab mice. Kalorama Information says that gene editing technologies have a multitude of commercial applications in numerous fields. The healthcare market researcher said that gene editing is involved the development of human therapeutics, new varieties of plants, new breeds of animals, improved animal models for research, and novel sources of chemicals and energy. Kalorama Information details gene editing applications and companies performing gene editing in its report, Gene Editing Markets.
"Gene editing is a future growth technology but it is not a futuristic technology," said Bruce Carlson, Publisher of Kalorama Information. "The development of user-friendly tools for gene editing has created a wide range of applications, and there will be more in the future."
Current genome editing technologies encompass several classes of programmable nucleases, including mononucleases, zinc finger nucleases (ZFN), transcription activator-like effector nucleases (TALEN), and CRISPR (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats)-Cas9nuclease systems. A few examples of such applications are presented in the table below. Kalorama has more information in its report.
