Gene Editing Industry Background

Gene editing industry can be traced back to late 1900’s. Zinc Finger, the first engineered nuclease technology was published in a journal in 1991 and since then, Zinc Finger was extensively utilized for ten years. However, this technology turned obsolete as it could not target certain nucleotide triplets that led to reduction in specificity. Later in early 2000’s, TALEN was discovered that was effective as compared to the previously utilized Zinc Finger technology. In 2012, CRISPR was introduced as the new gene editing tool that allowed accurate gene editing process. The gene editing industry is still in developing phase and will witness numerous growth opportunities in forthcoming years as the key industry players will introduce new technologies.
