CRISPR helped in spotting link between Fins and Hands
CRISPR gene editing technique helps fix sickle cell disease. But, it is safe to say that CRISPR gene editing technique raises the hope to other evolutionary patterns.
University of Chicago Scientists have found this technique to discover a key evolutionary connection between fins and hands. Researchers edited Fin-related zebrafish genes to make the appropriate cells glow as they develop and found that there is a similar glow in a mouse’s digits.
The biggest difference between a fin and a hand may be the issued involved that is the dermal bone in fish or the endochondral bone in humans, as the findings suggests.
