08:52 Gizmag CRISPR used to control which genes are passed down in mice


Humans have been tinkering with evolution for millennia, breeding plants and animals to favor the traits we want, but new research might make the process a bit more direct. Biologists at the University of California San Diego have successfully used the CRISPR gene-editing tool to control genetic inheritance in mice for the first time.
