Avatar worms help to identify factors that modify genetic diseases

IDIBELL researchers have used gene-editing technology in C. elegans to reproduce human mutations that cause retinitis pigmentaria. With this method, they have studied factors that affect disease development and possible drug treatments.   Often, patients from the same family and carriers of the same genetic mutation, develop a disease differently. This disparity may be due …
