Welcome to the Jiankui He Lab

For billions of years, life progressed according to Darwin¡¯s theory of evolution: random mutation in DNA, selection and reproduction. Today, human meet great challenge when the industrialization has caused great environment change. Genome sequencing and genome editing provided new powerful tools to control evolution. In our lab, we work hard to develop single molecule sequencing platform to read the genetic code of life. We aim to bring down the whole genome sequencing to the goal of $100, and make it available to everyone. As long as the genetic code is known, we use CRISPR-Cas9 to insert, edit or delete the associated gene for a particular trait. By correcting the disease genes, gaining protective alleles, we human can better live in the fast changing environment.
