Gene therapy tries to correct a genetic defect/ mutation by transferring a functional normal copy of the gene into cellsCrisper is a good "repairman"- it cuts a segment of DNA that is defected/mutated. Crisper can also put things back in: Deletes unwanted segment The body mechanism naturally tries to repair the damage by takeing whatever is around it: This method will cause errors or mutations- DEPENDS ON HOW THE DNA GETS DAMAGED: if it's not DNA synthesis in a CRISPER, than a DNA template will not be ready in time Homologous recombination- uses a DNA template and replaces it (with the right piece) with the unwanted segment Nonhomologous endjoining- takes the cut DNA and attempts to fuse the DNA together Methods of gene delivery
