The global genome engineering market or genome editing market segmentation is based on technologies (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats, transcription activator-like effector nuclease, zinc finger nuclease), applications (animal genome engineering, cell line engineering, plant genome engineering), end users (academics, clinical research organizations, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies).
Previous research has shown that CRISPR can generate genomic changes or mutations through these interventions far more efficiently than other gene editing techniques, such as TALEN, short for transcription activator-like effector nuclease.
Searching for strategies to repair mitochondrial gene defects, a group of investigators at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine explored proteins called transcription activator-like (TAL) effectors- which are found only in certain types of plant-infecting bacteria.
Science magazine heralded these transcription activator-like effector nuclease proteins, known as TALENS, as a major scientific breakthrough in 2012, nicknaming them "genomic cruise missiles" for their ability to allow researchers to target specific locations with great efficiency.
The researchers used specially designed enzymes, called zinc finger nucleases and transcription activator-like effector nucleases, to create a double strand break in the DNA and bring about the repair of the gene.
