Cornell University researchers have spent 10 years learning how CRISPR-Cas3 works, and now their hard work is paying off. They believe the technology could one day be used to cure viral diseases by ‘shredding’ viral DNA following more research and development. In the future it is hoped CRISPR-Cas3 will be used to target specific sections of viral DNA, and delete whole stretches of the DNA, thus curing the disease.
