Scientists Are Using CRISPR Gene Editing to Put Alligator Genes Into Catfish
Scientists are attempting to reduce diseases in farmed catfish by genetically engineering them with alligator genes. Dr. Rex Dunham, an expert in fish genetics at the University of Auburn alongside his colleagues, is attempting to “insert alligator genes into the genomes of fish.” Dr. Dunham has decided to insert alligator genes into catfish because alligators contain the gene cathelicidin, an antimicrobial used to fight infections. … Continue reading Scientists Are Using CRISPR Gene Editing to Put Alligator Genes Into Catfish
