Bright Night 2021

Researchers’ Night. In Pisa with the I-GENE project.

Have you ever thought about the existence of molecular scissors capable of cutting DNA? What if these scissors are so precise that they can recognize, among the three billion base pairs that make up human DNA, a very small sequence that causes a disease? Could this cut be used to correct this mistake?

We talked about it during our talk at Bright Night 2021.
