CRISPR last Update

CRISPR is the game changing technology. A millennial disruptor. A new Era was settled for: biology, chemistry, and for all science. Now the doors of possibilities and perception are open.

Top news of CRISPR February 2021

TALEN gene editing tool more efficient than CRISPR-Cas9 in compact DNA: study

Scientists at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign found that the gene editing tool TALEN is up to five times more efficient than CRISPR-Cas9 in parts of the genome called heterochromatin. (LionFive/Pixabay)[1]

So first how can we define CRISPR for Genetic Modification

A CRISPR definition of genetic modification

Gene editing techniques have the potential to substantially accelerate plant breeding. Now, officials in the United States and Europe are arguing that it is not genetic modification — and that is a good thing![2]

So all organisms created with CRISPR are GMO’s?

Here an answer of the USDA:

The United States takes an essentially functional view of GMOs, not concerning itself with the technologies that created the animals or plants but rather what the effects of the manipulations have been. The USDA statement further clarifies, “Under its biotechnology regulations, USDA does not currently regulate, or have any plans to regulate plants that could otherwise have been developed through traditional breeding techniques as long as they are developed without the use of a plant pest as the donor or vector and they are not themselves plant pests[3]

What animals or plants (or variations) have been created from CRISPR

Is there actually teams of scientists working with animals embryos modified with CRISPR CAS, or working with plants to actually solve the world need for more, quality and healthy food?

China’s CRISPR push in animals promises better meat, novel therapies, and pig organs for people

China is leading CRISPR research with his: Yunnan Key Laboratory of Primate Biomedical Research.

The most startling part of what is coming out of China is seeing how they have just a brute-force approach. The level of animal support they have to do those experiments is really astounding.Jon Hennebold, Oregon National Primate Research Center[4]

Dynamic Periodic Table Open Source

Dynamic Periodic Table

Above all Science Chemistry is vital and the Dynamic Periodic Table is essential.

Because of that i decided to work on a Dynamic Periodic Table with no license (Open Source), anyone can get the code for free.

Further you can check the Mission to Science: a spaceship survival travel that combines Gaming with learning.

You can check the Web version of the Open Source Dynamic Table here.

So you can get the code to of this Dynamic Table Open Source on Github.

A periodic table of elements by definition consists of tabular display of the chemical elements.

The Elements are arranged by atomic number, electron configuration, and recurring chemical properties“.

However a traditional Periodic Table like the ones that make possible the printing industry have limitations.

So in order to boost learning technology and apps are great allies.

By using apps, and electronics: the best of technology we can accelerate the learning curve.

As we know Chemistry is in the core of science.

That’s why our ancestors were alchemists.

Dynamic Periodic Table structure

A traditional periodic table has seven rows also known as periods.

Normally metals are on the left and nonmetals on the right.

However columns are called groups and contain elements with similar chemical behaviours.
