CRISPR/ Cas9 enables geneticists and medical researchers to edit parts of the genome by removing, adding, or altering section of the DNA sequence. It’s also considered to be some of  the simplest, most versatile, and precise method of gene manipulation. This system consists of two key molecules: an enzyme and a part of the RNA.

The value of CRISPR/ Cas9 compared to biotechnology is capable of increasing the number of chemicals and products for industrial production through the process of fermentation and can also broaden the diversity of strains. Also in the areas where tools for genetic manipulation are lacking, it can be used to complete pre-existing techniques as well as provide a set of capabilities for organisms.
