Un test Covid-19 sur smartphone, mis au point avec Jennifer Doudna, prix Nobel, inventrice de CRISPR

Si l’on pouvait tester facilement le maximum de personnes, la crise du Covid deviendrait sans doute un mauvais souvenir. Mais nous butons sur les tests. Trop complexes à mettre en œuvre, longs à fournir des résultats, inégaux dans leur fiabilité. La solution pourrait venir de CRISPR, ces fameux ciseaux moléculaires

Malaria, Zika, chikungunya... are terrible scourges. Caused by mosquitoes that all the affected countries intend to eradicate. Researchers have long been examining chemical (insecticides), physical (radiation), transgenic solutions... Nothing seems to be effective enough next to a bludgeoning weapon: genetic forcing. It is a
