Osaka University opens genome-editing research center

  • 2016/12/15

Osaka University has become the first university in Japan to set up a permanent research facility for genome-editing technologies following the opening of a new center on Wednesday.

Genome editing involves technologies to insert and delete or replace DNA at a specific site in the genome of an organism or cell. The technologies alter genes with greater accuracy than existing genetic-modification technologies and are coming into wider use.

Ten researchers at the Osaka University center will study efficient genome editing and analysis in rats and mice. It will also hold seminars for researchers from both Japan and abroad.
