Gene Drive Recommendations

The advent of CRISPR-Cas9 based genome engineering has opened up many avenues for genome engineering in many organisms. A group of Drosophila researchers active in the field have published some guidance and recommendations for using gene drive systems based on our collective experiences. We highlight some of the potential problems, provide suggestions for using drive-based systems and call for transparency in the use of these systems in the laboratory. The consensus view of our group is available now in Science.
