China develops infrared light to alter genes of cancer cells

Chinese scientists claim they have developed an infrared light-based, remotely-controlled gene-editing tool that can target and kill cancer cells with precision. A team led by Professor Song Yujun from the Nanjing University’s College of Engineering and Applied Sciences designed an infrared light-responsive nano-carrier to be used for the CRISPR-Cas9 gene-editing tool, which will have great […]
