CRISPR genome-editing technology is only five years old, but it has already made remarkable strides in biomedical, microbial, and agricultural research. CRISPR affords scientists the ability to edit multiple genes at once in any extant organism, which is especially relevant for generating in vivo model systems for pathologies like cancer. With CRISPR, researchers can now easily tailor the genome of an organism to suit their needs, with minimal prior animal model development experience required.
