Session 5: Human Genome Engineering-Chromosomal engineering with CRISPR/Cas9 system in human iPS cells-Scope and Aspects

With the recent development of CRISPR (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats)/Cas9 genome editing technology, the possibility to genetically manipulate the human germline (gametes and embryos) has become a distinct technical possibility. Although many technical challenges still need to be overcome in order to achieve adequate efficiency and precision of the technology in human embryos, the path leading to genome editing has never been simpler, more affordable, and widespread. Scientists are more efficient and precise in the field of Human gene Editing. It can be used for better health and a disease free physic.National Academy of Sciences and National Academy of Medicine released a study report stating the human gene-editing technologies, their potential applications in biomedical research and medicine, and the clinical, ethical, legal, and social implications of their use. Due to the fear of loosing the mother gene the Government has put a ban to the further application of the Genome editing in the case of Human .

Session 6: Multiplex Automated Genomic Engineering.(MAGE)

Multiplex Automated Genome engineering is a recombination tool for large scale programming and accelerated evolution of cells.  Multiplex Automated Genome Engineering was introduced by George Church. Researchers and Scientists would edit one gene at a time, examine the phenotype changes, and start the whole process again . So this was time taking as well as cost effective. MAGE is fast and efficient, cheap, and highly scalable to use . It also allows researchers to edit specific or random sites in the genome and it also operates continuously in vivo. MAGE’s main limitation on the other hand lies on its portability. It has been exclusively used in E. coli so far.

Session 7: Gene knock in and genomic screening using TALEN and CRISPR

About two years later after the discovery of the chimeric TALEN proteins, another genome editing system, CRISPR, elements of which are non-coding RNAs and Cas proteins (CR ISPR associated), was developed and started to be extensively used. In contrast to the chimeric TALEN proteins, recognition by the CRISPR/ Cas system is carried out via the complementary interaction between a non-coding RNA and the target site DNA. In this case, a complex of non-coding RNA and Cas proteins, which have nuclease activity, is formed.

Session 10: Application of NgAgo

NgAgo was proposed in May 2016 to be useful for genome editing because of the system’s high accuracy and efficiency, which was said to minimize off-target effects. The specificity of the “g DNA” is essential, as cleavage efficiency is impaired by a single nucleotide mismatch between the guide and target molecules. Using 5’ phosphorylated ssDNAs as guide molecules reduces the possibility of cellular oligonucleotides misleading NgAgo. A guide molecule can only be attached to NgAgo during the expression of the protein. Once the guide is loaded, NgAgo cannot swap free floating ssDNA for its gDNA.

Session 11: Gene Therapy With Aav

These viruses can insert genetic material at a specific site on chromosome 19 with an average of 100% certainty. Adeno-associated viruses, from the parvovirus family, are small viruses with a genome of single stranded DNA. There are a few disadvantages to using AAV, including the small amount of DNA it can carry (low capacity) and the difficulty in producing it. In contrast to adenoviruses, most people treated with AAV will not build an immune response to remove the virus and the cells that have been successfully treated with it. This type of virus is being used, however, because it is non-pathogenic (most people carry this harmless virus).

Genome Editing is in High Demaand:

Genome editing can also be termed as “Genome engineering”,”Gene editing”, or “Gene engineering”. This technique includes various technologies, using which scientists can alter the DNA of an organism or cells. These techniques include inserting, removing, replacing or modifying specific fragments of DNA by which rewrite of DNA is possible. It enables scientists to examine the changes that occur during the process. This process was too expensive and difficult until now. However after the arrival of CRISPR/Cas9 techniques the process of Genome editing became familiar to Scientists and researchers. The applications of Genome editing cannot be limited due to its enormous growth in the field of drug, modified animals, agriculture etc.

Genome Editing & Engineering in Middle East

 The global Human Genetics identification market was valued at an estimated $419.4 million in 2013 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 13.9% in the next five years. As the genomics era dawns, scientists have identified a wide range of minor variations in the human genome that are associated with susceptibility to certain diseases or conditions. The variations may not cause the conditions, but are inherited along with them and serve as reliable markers. However, since Middle Eastern diversity is poorly captured in existing genomic data, these markers become unreliable in the region.

Genome Editing & Engineering in Asia:

Yet as Asia develops, many countries in the region are gaining the skills and capital to play a growing role in the ongoing genomics revolution. Some of them are now competing aggressively to launch genomic research institutes and companies. They could eventually challenge Western leadership in the field.Asia-Pacific (APAC) region is expected to deliver the fastest growth at a CAGR of 10.1 % during the forecast period. Middle East and Africa (ME&A) is likely generate moderate growth skewed in favour opf the Gulf economies of Saudi Arabia, UAE and others. Poor economy, limited healthcare and political instability hamper the Africa genetic testing market.These countries want to be part of an unfolding revolution in healthcare. Recent advances in genomics are delivering amazing new understandings of the code of life, including how it interacts with our environments to make us who we are. This allows us to screen for previously hidden disease risks and develop personalized treatments that can help us live longer, healthier lives (something known in the healthcare world as “precision medicine”). It also allows us to manipulate our environments to make the world a safer and more comfortable place.By getting involved in the genomics revolution, Asian countries hope to unlock economic opportunities in this fast-growing field. Many also want to make sure that the unique genetic attributes of Asian peoples are better understood. Since most genomic research until now was led by Western researchers, many insights from the field are more applicable to people of Western heritage than other backgrounds. This is particularly true in highly consanguineous Asian populations, such as those in the Gulf region, where genetic diseases are common.
