UMMS scientists use CRISPR to learn Zika and dengue weaknesses

Scientists during a University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMMS) have achieved a initial CRISPR/Cas9 shade to learn tellurian proteins that Zika pathogen needs for replication. This work, led by Abraham Brass, MD, PhD, partner highbrow in microbiology physiological systems, reveals new leads that competence be useful for crude Zika, dengue and More...
