The problem with CRISPR, is that not many people are actually experts in the field, and there are only a select few who worked on it pre-2013. So how did this UK Startup make a big name for itself in field of the ‘Biotech Breakthrough of the Century’?

Desktop Genetics is a startup founded in 2012 by three young researchers from Cambridge who were frustrated by the way the field managed gene editing experiments. Today they are building an AI to assist researchers and clinicians using CRISPR in cells, and eventually, human patients.
