We achieved our first scientific milestone
We engineered our first targeted CRISPR system against antibiotic resistance and were able to kill 95% of bacteria with a single dose.
Proof of Concept
How the proof of concept works
Bacteria without any treatment. We altered their genome to express a fluorescent color.
Control + Antibiotic
The bacteria treated with antibiotics. No significant difference because it's resistant to antibiotics. Bacteria express the same color.
Color changed, the CRISPR system has cut the resistant genes and turn off the fluorescent color
CRISPR System + Antibiotic
Bacteria treated with the same antibiotic as in step 2, the bacteria has been sensitized to antibiotics, killing 95% bacteria with a single-dose treatment.
