New Journal Details Applications, Technology Behind CRISPR Gene Editing
The CRISPR Journal, an international, multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journal, will publish its inaugural issue today, with the goal of highlighting outstanding research on the myriad applications and underlying technology of CRISPR (clustered regularly interspersed short palindromic repeats) gene editing.
Published by GEN publisher Mary Ann Liebert Inc., The CRISPR Journal has been established to offer cutting-edge international original research papers, as well as a compelling mix of review articles, perspectives, profiles, and commentary spanning matters of research as well as social, ethical, and business issues confronting the field.
“This is obviously a very momentous time for the field, and this inaugural issue fittingly captures the breadth and depth of the field, spanning plant editing, gene drives, and therapeutic applications, as well as an IP landscape review and historical insight into the genome editing revolution,” Rodolphe Barrangou, Ph.D., editor-in-chief of The CRISPR Journal, said in a statement.
“The cover illustrates the ceremonial ribbon cutting in a relevant manner, and our content showcases our commitment to a diverse readership,” added Dr. Barrangou, who is also associate professor of food science, North Carolina State University.
Dr. Barrangou is among the CRISPR luminaries published in the journal. Others include Qin Liu, Ph.D., M.D., of Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infrmary and Harvard Medical School; Francisco Mojica, Ph.D., of University of Alicante in Spain; Luke A. Wiley, Ph.D., of University of Iowa and its Carver College of Medicine; Jacob Sherkow, J.D., an intellectual property lawyer at New York Law School; Fyodor Urnov, Ph.D., of the Altius Institute for Biomedical Sciences; and Eduard Akhunov, Ph.D., of Kansas State University.
