Genome editing methods are becoming routine tools for molecular and cell biologists. Such tools include ZFNs, CRISPR, megaTALs and TALENs. These tools are revolutionizing the creation of precisely manipulated genomes to modify the characteristics of organisms or cells. Additionally, gene drives have altered the way we understand inheritance laws. They give us the ability to have total control of the inheritance of traits of choice and importance. This succinct volume summarizes the history, principles, and applications - as well as the advantages and disadvantages - of each of these tools and various kinds of gene drives. The book is part of a program to produce books helpful to students and faculties of science at colleges and universities. This volume in the Pocket Guides to Biomedical Sciences series will help demystify these technologies. The book fills the gap between established conventional methods and the novel and exciting newly introduced tools of genome editing and gene drives. It will help young scientists understand the emerging genome editing tools and gene drives thereby promoting related research and adoption. Key Features The book extensively reviews the current genome editing tools and gene drives. Clarifies their targeting mechanisms and specificity of genome editing tools. Details many different types of natural and synthetic gene drives. Highlights concerns with gene drives and genome editing tools. Related Titles Brown, T. A.

CRISPR/Cas is a recently described defense system that protects bacteria and archaea against invasion by mobile genetic elements such as viruses and plasmids. A wide spectrum of distinct CRISPR/Cas systems has been identified in at least half of the available prokaryotic genomes. On-going structural and functional analyses have resulted in a far greater insight into the functions and possible applications of these systems, although many secrets remain to be discovered. In this book, experts summarize the state of

Genome editing has become the most used tool to produce genetically engineered animals. Specifically in livestock species, the CRISPR/Cas9 system has allowed hundreds of animal models in the last three years to be generated. Despite the high efficiency of this genetic tool, there are still deficiencies of the system that compromise the infinite number of possibilities to induce complex genetic modifications. In vitro studies, as well as intense mouse embryo work paved the way for all the experiments that

Heritable human genome editing - making changes to the genetic material of eggs, sperm, or any cells that lead to their development, including the cells of early embryos, and establishing a pregnancy - raises not only scientific and medical considerations but also a host of ethical, moral, and societal issues. Human embryos whose genomes have been edited should not be used to create a pregnancy until it is established that precise genomic changes can be made reliably and without introducing
