Geneticists first implanted a surrogate mother with a horse embryo, created using the technology of editing the Crispr genes. Specialists managed to change the gene that controls muscle growth. Thus, they hope to create a “super-horse” – a faster and stronger individual.
Crispr (Clustered Regular Inter-Spaced Palindromic Repeats, translated as “short palindromic repeats, regularly located in groups”) is a tool for making precise changes in DNA found in bacteria. This technique makes it possible to operate with genes.
