A New Autoimmune Disease Is Found, Along with a Personalized Treatment for a Child's Rare Illness

Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

Elijah Patino is a happy, healthy seven-year-old now, but it took a while to get there. For much of his life, he had a mysterious disease that made it painful to eat and painful to play. A pediatric immunologist resolved this "diagnostic odyssey" by identifying the molecular cause of this autoimmune condition, then crafted a low-dose immunosuppressive regimen to provide a precise treatment.

CRISPR diversifies: Cut, paste, on, off, and now– evolve!

Innovative Genomics Institute

Scientists at the Innovative Genomics Institute have concocted a transformative new way to harness the power of evolution. Today in Nature, researchers at UC Berkeley describe yet another creative application for CRISPR: a platform to spur evolution of specific genes inside cells. Their inventive new system, “EvolvR,” lets scientists shake up the DNA letters in their gene of choice until they find the variation that’s just right. The technology opens up countless possibilities, like engineering yeast that efficiently turn waste into biofuels, or developing new human therapeutics.
