Gene editing. Conceptual illustration of a pair of scissors being used to cut a strand of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). Molecular and biochemical tools are used to edit genes, such as the CRISPR-Cas9 protein which is used in genome engineering. Also shown here are the letters of the genetic code (CGAT), which indicate the nucleotide bases on the DNA strand: cytosine (C), guanine (G), adenine (A), and thymine (T).
