Memphis Meats Uses Crispr to Create Real Meat From Animal Cells

Crispr's technology allows start-up company Memphis Meats to create lab-grown sustainable meat that offers an alternative approach to slaughter without disrupting any quality of tastes. Crispr functions as a 'genetic scissor,' allowing researchers to experiment with DNA of any organisms. This allows for the opportunity to create real beef and chicken produce using animal cells, which offers the alternative to slaughter.

The process involves a series of research and development practices, which are rooted in exploring progressive techniques that can ultimately product trustworthy produce safe to public health and the environment. The goal is to make the findings both affordable and scale-able as well. Crispr's gene-editing tool essentially provides researchers the ability to tweak an organism's DNA without going through traditional breeding methods. It can also exercise precise genetic edits as well -- an example includes replacing a gene that controls browning with something initiating longer shelf-life.
