Researchers use AI to edit human DNA

Researchers at Profluent, a Berkeley-based startup, used AI to develop novel gene editing tools based on CRISPR. Their method involved feeding massive biological datasets into the AI to create new and potentially more efficient editors.

If you want to stay ahead of the curve in AI and tech, take a look here.

Key points:

Researchers at a Berkeley startup called Profluent used AI to design new gene editors based on CRISPR. They claim their AI-made editor, OpenCRISPR-1, is the first open-source one, edits human DNA more efficiently and may be able to match or outdo existing CRISPR models Profluent is open-sourcing the editor to allow other researchers to improve it. The safety and effectiveness of AI-made gene editing for humans are still uncertain.
