The etymology of CRISPR stands for “Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats,” which are periodically distributed at regular intervals, meaning a technique capable of ‘recognizing’ and editing a specific gene sequence, i.e. CRISPR
It’s a combination of short gene sequences and CAS9, a protein that can find the desired sequence in billions of gene sequences and change it as we want. This CRISPR gene scissors is a technique commonly called gene therapy. With the release of genetic code specifying specific characteristics, scientists can insert or delete genes into the genome of virtually any plant or animal. In this paper, I explained the history and development of CRISPR. And proposed suggestions of utilizing it in various aspects.
