SNIPRs take aim at disease-related mutations

Researchers from the Green lab at Arizona State University have reported a highly specific method for detecting point mutations. The technique can be applied in living cells and paper-based diagnostic tests, offering a rapid, highly accurate and inexpensive means of identifying mutations relevant to human health. The work is published in Cell. (ASU Biodesign story)
