About this book

This book presents descriptive overviews of gene editing strategies across multiple species while also offering in-depth insight on complex cases of application in the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.  Chapters feature contributions from leaders in stem cell therapy and biology, providing a comprehensive view of the application of gene therapy in numerous fields with an emphasis on ophthalmology, stem cells, and agriculture. The book also highlights recent major technological advances, including ZFN, TALEN, and CRISPR. Precision Medicine, CRISPR, and Genome Engineering is part of the highly successful Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology series. It is an indispensable resource for researchers and students in genetics as well as clinicians. 

About the authors

For years, Stephen Tsang has been culturing embryonic stem (ES) cells and created the first mouse model for a recessive form of retinitis pigmentosa by applying homologous recombination to ES cell technology. Two elements define his laboratory. First, by leveraging his genetics clinical practice, in which over 1000 retinal patients are cared for, he brings an array of clinical resources to his research, including stem cells and live imaging data. Second, he and his students are recognized authorities in a broad array of state-of-the-art technologies. Most recently, he was invited as a Moderator for the Gene Editing/Rewriting the Genome session during the 65th American Society of Human Genetics Annual Meeting.
