CRISPR: A Technology That Could Help In the Fight Against COVID-19

I found this interesting article from the United States Government Accountability Office blog about using CRISPR gene editing techniques to create new fast diagnostics test kits for identifying COVID-19 viruses.

Reviewing “Genetics and Human Health”

The book by Faith Hickman Byrnie is one of the best structured books on genetics that I’ve read. Despite the fact that it was published in 1995, the book is one of the best introduction into the world of genetics for a middle schooler. The stories the author incorporated into the book to explain what genetics was, had an impact on me. The stories were not bland, but full of vivid detail and were more than compelling; it will keep you engaged.
