  7. Programmable base editing of Aa T to Ga C in genomic DNA without DNA cleavageRead the original story

    Oct 25, 2017 | Nature

    The spontaneous deamination of cytosine is a major source of transitions from Ca G to Ta A base pairs, which account for half of known pathogenic point mutations in humans. The ability to efficiently convert targeted Aa T base pairs to Ga C could therefore advance the study and treatment of genetic diseases.
