#65 CRISPRed Imprinting Disorders
Over the weekend, geneticists, genetic counselors, professors, researchers and students gathered at the University of Connecticut to learn about a new genetic editing technology that has taken over labs and stolen headlines, CRISPR.
UCONN hosted "The Impact of CRISPR on Imprinting Disorders" featuring presentations from Christopher Stoddard, Dr. Marc Lalande, Dr. Stormy Chamberlain, Dr. Michael O'Neill among others.
Chris Stoddard, who operates the human genome editing core at UCONN Health, join me on the show to explain CRISPR's origin, how we adapted CRISPR to use it in the lab, and two different CRISPR methods (editing the genome and the epigenome).
I highlight other research with CRISPR including to research autism spectrum disorder, Angelman Syndrome and Prader-Willi Syndrome.
