16 Leading Companies in the Global CRISPR Market

The field of gene editing is expanding rapidly. A team of scientists in China recently injected CRISPR-edited cells into a human patient for the first time — potentially setting off a biomedical race between China and the United States, as reported in the international scientific journal Nature.

More significant developments are expected in the years to come. The global CRISPR market is forecast to grow at an astonishing compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 35% from 2016 to 2022, according to Inkwood Research, a market intelligence firm. The number of scientific papers published on CRISPR continues to soar, from below 200 papers in 2012 to more than 1,200 papers in 2015.

CRISPR/Cas: A New Frontier in Genetic Manipulation

Recently, there has been a lot of buzz around a “new” tool that scientists have found to perform genetic manipulation that is referred to as CRISPR/Cas. The ability to edit DNA has been available for quite some time, so what makes this method special? The answer lies in what it is and how well it works.

What Is CRISPR?

CRISPR is an acronym that stands for “clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats.” It is not actually a technology; it is a natural DNA sequence found in bacteria. So why do we care about bacterial DNA? What scientists have discovered is that there is a part of the bacterial DNA where DNA sequences would show up over and over and, in between those duplicate sequences, there were more unique sequences that matched the viruses that the bacteria had run into in the past. The bacteria use those unique sequences to identify the viruses that are a threat so they can defend themselves much like an immune system.

An Investor’s Guide to Understanding Market Variation within the Global Cord Blood Industry

Market Variation within the Global Cord Blood Industry

Cord blood banks now exist within nearly every developed country, as well within most developing nations. However, there is still significant variation within the industry. First, there is the divide between private and public cord blood banking, in which private companies serve individual families, while public banks serve the broader population. Additionally, some cord blood banks receive only units from nearby hospitals and birthing centers, while others allow mail-in units from a diverse geographic region.

The Technical, Legal, and Political Minefield of Commercializing Stem Cells

Stem cells are primitive cells found in all multi-cellular organisms and are characterized by self-renewal and the capacity to differentiate into any mature cell type. However, it is this primitive nature that intrinsically makes commercializing stem cells a technical, legal and political minefield.
