Engineered Virus Protects Bacteria While Eliminating Antibiotic Resistance

Editing the sequence of bases in a DNA molecule is pretty straightforward in a test tube. Until recently, editing the DNA of a living organism had been a very large challenge, one that was more often avoided than taken up. But a system bacteria use to defeat viruses has been repurposed to make a versatile DNA editing system.

That’s pretty crazy. But when can I have my own baby triceratops?
