Moving ahead with our blog series we are bringing up Base Editing a new feather in the cap of gene editing therapy. Base Editing Therapy is a technology that introduces single-nucleotide variants (SNVs) precisely and efficiently at targeted genomic sequences without causing double-stranded breaks in the DNA enabling it as an efficient technique of genome editing. Nearly half of known pathogenic genetic variants are due to SNVs and base editing therapy holds enormous potential for the treatment of these genetic disorders by either temporary RNA or permanent DNA base alterations. Correction of single point mutations will be a major point of interest in the upcoming times for the scientific community for precision medicine.
