Default News of CRISPR's demise have been greatly exaggerated

Two recent articles suggest that CRISPR/Cas9 can cause mutations in the p53 pathway, irrespective of the target sequence of the guide RNA. The data are extremely interesting since they raise the issue of unpredictable off-target effects that are not directly introduced by the CRISPR/Cas9 complex but rather selected during the genome manipulation process. A thorough analysis of the genomic integrity of cells genetically manipulated with CRISPR is, therefore, the key to successful use of the technology, as described in https://perkinelmer-appliedgenomics.com/research-review-crispr-cas9/ .
