CRISPR is thought of as 'molecular scissors' used to cut and edit DNA, but researchers are now looking far beyond these applications. In a new comprehensive review, they explore the current state of CRISPR in crops, and how scientists can enhance traditional breeding techniques in nontraditional ways to a growing population in the face of climate change, diseases, and pests.

Polygenic risk scores -- genetic risk scores that take into account variations in a person's entire DNA -- are able to predict coronary artery disease in those who have not yet had heart attacks. Polygenic risk scores are not as accurate at predicting second heart attacks. With further research and refinement, polygenetic risk scores could help individualize and target lifestyle modifications and therapies aimed at preventing and managing heart disease.
