Horizon Discovery teams up with US company founded by CRISPR pioneer

UK-listed Horizon’s team-up with Mammoth is an interesting one given its co-founder is Jennifer Doudna, a world-renowned leader in what known as the CRISPR revolution

Horizon Discovery Group PLC -

Horizon Discovery Group PLC (LON:HZD) is teaming up with San Francisco-based Mammoth Biosciences to jointly develop new CRISPR tools for the next generation of engineered cells.

CRISPR allows scientists to make precision edits to any DNA, whether bacterial or human.

Scientists discovered the technique when studying a bacteria's immune system, which they gave the acronym CRISPR. It stands for clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats.

UK-listed Horizon’s team-up with Mammoth is an interesting one given its co-founder is Jennifer Doudna, a world-renowned leader in what known as the CRISPR revolution.

Mammoth received a lot of press around its Series A financing last year that brought in Apple CEO Tim Cook and Jeff Huber, former CEO of early cancer screening company Grail.
