PhD student at UC San Francisco
Theodore Roth, a PhD student at UC San Francisco explains
much of his work and research on Gene editing (knocking one sequence out, and
another sequence in) using CRISPR. Utilizing Cas9 proteins along with CRISPR
sequences allows for accurate knockouts and even implantation of sequence
corrections, becoming the basis for therapies and burgeoning treatments. Mr.
Roth’s research in gene editing and immunology creates a fascinating framework
for this lecture on CRISPR/Cas9 interactions.
