  • 2.6 billion-year-old ancestors of the CRISPR gene-editing tool are resurrected

    An international research group has for the first time reconstructed ancestors dating back 2.6 billion years of the well-known CRISPR-Cas system, and studied their evolution over time. The results suggest that the revitalized systems not only work, but are more versatile than current versions and could have revolutionary applications. The prestigious scientific journal Nature Microbiology has published the results of this research which, in the opinion of the research team, "opens up new avenues for gene editing".  

  • Women at the forefront of science and technology

    Twenty-four Basque entities join forces around the Emakumeak Zientzian project by signing a new collaboration agreement, thus ratifying their commitment to the initiative’s objectives: make women’s activity in science visible, break with typically male roles attributed to scientific-technical activities and encourage the choice of scientific careers among girls and adolescents. With these objectives in mind, the entities join forces to organize a joint program of activities on the occasion of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, which is celebrated every year on February 11.
