CRISPR stops coronavirus replication in human cells Actual title.


*CRISPR is a tool that enables researchers to precisely edit DNA. It’s based on a natural defense system used in bacteria that allows the microbes to target and destroy the genetic material of viruses, Live Science previously reported.* How fucking cool is that? Also, I can already feel the earthshaking from the wave of anti-vax rushing this way to stop it.


Teeny bit of an overstatement. It’s great news, yes, but in a petri dish.


The only thing CRISPR can’t do is leave the lab. It’s the new graphene!


It does what the antivaxers claim about existing vax.
