New frontiers in gene editing

Berkeley bioengineers are developing new techniques and tools to advance CRISPR-Cas9 applications, which could have implications for nearly every genetic disease.

At fault

A team of earthquake engineers, working out of the lab of professor Steven Glaser, is taking research on asperities to a new level by studying fault mechanics at nanoscale.
