The powerful gene editing technology: clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeat (CRISPR), was discovered in 2012. CRISPR is a genetic engineering method that allows for the modification of live organisms' genomes that is based on the CRISFigure 1: Role of CRISPR-Cas9. PR-Cas9 antiviral defense system used by bacteria. In comparison to earlier gene editing methods, it is easier, less expensive, and more accurate. It also has a variety of practical applications, including developing crops and treating genetic disorders.
