@Sloonie since most of the cells that are you are actually bacteria, I wonder how Crispr-CAS9 enters into this scenario. Bacteria capture and retain a section of viral genetic material in their own DNA. Is this what continues to manufacture the viral DNA fragments that get picked up by PCR? Is this cleared by Z-Pak or Doxycycline? |
Oddly, even though DNA mechanisms are, usually, retained, humans don't have this CAS9 tool to copy viral DNA. We do have other reverse-transcriptase to change RNA back into DNA. But without the CAS9 to snip open the DNA there is no clear path to put this into the cellular DNA.
