Scientists discover a safer approach to gene drive

Scientists from Cornell University have developed what they hope will be a safer approach to gene drives called Toxin-Antidote Recessive Embryo (TARE) system. According to the research, the new approach has the potential to delay resistance and requires a substantial number of individuals above a certain threshold to escape a trial zone to spread the genes more widely.

More information about the discovery is available at Cornell’s website and the journal Nature Communications.
