Genome editing tools such as the clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeat (CRISPR)-associated system (Cas) have been widely used to modify genes in model systems including animal zygotes and human cells, and hold tremendous promise for both basic research and clinical applications. To date, a serious knowledge gap remains in our understanding of DNA repair mechanisms in human early embryos, and in the efficiency and potential off-target effects of using technologies such as CRISP...

Genome editing could be applied to correct disease-causing mutations in human embryos, but concerns about efficacy and safety are paramount. Shoukhrat Mitalipov and colleagues use CRISPRCas9 to correct a heritable cardiomyopathy mutation in human embryos. By optimizing the experimental conditions, the authors show very reduced mosaicism, and report that for this heterozygous mutation, CRISPRCas9-induced breaks seem to be preferentially repaired using the wild-type allele as a template in human e...
