The end of genetic disease

Tony Perry

“A genome Editing Switch” Session with Dr Tony Perry of the University of Bath will touch on the following areas:

  • How genetic code expansion works in mammalian cells
  • Switching on Cas9 activity with a non-physiological amino acid, BOC
  • Examples of heritable, BOC-induced genome editing
  • Some potential applications
