I read this article about two researchers who are working on a version of CRISPR that seems like it would be the theoretical cure of our ailments.
It is a modified version of CRISPR (possibly related to dcas9) that, “leaves DNA letters alone but adds or removes genetic silencers”.
The researcher who developed this technique is Shawn Liu and calls it “DNA methylation editing”.
Maybe he’d be interested in our situation. Who knows.
