The disclosure in “The Heroes of CRISPR” article recently published in Cell has set off a firestorm of criticism. The conflict stems from Lander’s position as head of the Broad Institute which is currently in a patent dispute with UC-Berkley over the patents for the CRISPR/Cas9 technology. Regalado points out that Doudna has also failed to always state conflict of interests.
