Clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR) technology gives drug discovery researchers the ability to alter sequences and expression levels of genes to help them identify therapeutic drug targets and test the therapeutic efficiency of drug candidates. CRISPR has become more useful in the drug discovery process as the cost of using CRISPR and DNA sequencingDNA sequencing technologies has decreased due to technological and economies of scale improvements. CRISPR can play a role in several stages of the drug discovery process as outlined in the following diagram:
