At 1:20 Jennifer Doudna blows the whistle on Feng Zhang, as George Church sits quietly — knowing that he already filed a patent application on the RNA-guided technology.

SESSION II, Discussion with Summit Planning Committee and the Advisory Group for NAS/NAM Initiative on Human Gene Editing

RNA-Guided Human Genome Engineering (Filing date 7/2/15)

A method of altering a eukaryotic cell is provided including transfecting the eukaryotic cell with a nucleic acid encoding RNA complementary to genomic DNA of the eukaryotic cell, transfecting the eukaryotic cell with a nucleic acid encoding an enzyme that interacts with the RNA and cleaves the genomic DNA in a site specific manner, wherein the cell expresses the RNA and the enzyme, the RNA binds to complementary genomic DNA and the enzyme cleaves the genomic DNA in a site specific manner.
