CRISPR Convenience: Cas7-11 Redefines RNA Editing

Scientists, typically, are on their own after their post-doc ends. Sometimes, albeit rarely, they team up, blending their ideas, money, and people. Connie Cepko, PhD, and Cliff Tabin, PhD, pioneered the idea of a lab partnership, spending the last few decades working together in their shared lab at Harvard Medical…
