The Imperative Need to Consider the Bioethics of CRISPR-Cas9 Technology

  Jihee Yoon University High School, CA   Abstract The CRISPR-Cas9 technology is the latest and most controversial gene editing technology available today. It allows for precise editing of DNA, which is also known as the genetic code of the human body. While CRISPR seems to possess great potential to solve genetic mutations, ethicists and researchers still believe this technology should not be applied as of now due to its insufficient experimentation, significant consent limitations, […]

Zika Virus: Novel Detection Techniques and Treatment

Abstract The United States is one of the countries affected by this disease, which cause microcephaly in newborns. In order to stop the spread, new novel detection techniques were developed such as RT-Lamp and the RT-PCR and treatments as Emricasan, Niclosamide and CDK, these drugs can help prevent Zika virus duplication. Therefore, with these new advancements in technology and medicine the Zika will have a much slimmer chance of creating chaos in today’s society. Introduction […]
