Scientists create new tool to identify genomic safe harbor sites in specific tissues


Scientists at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital have created a tool that can find safe places to introduce genes into human DNA. The tool is an early step in the process to improve the safety and efficacy of gene and cell therapies. The work appears today in Genome Biology. The study’s first authors are Dewan Shrestha, of St. Jude and The University of Tennessee Health Science Center, and Aishee Bag, of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey.
