NgAgo Gene Editing Study Retracted

David Cyranoski, Nature News, 03 August 2017

The authors of the highly controversial NgAgo gene editing paper published in Nature Biotechnology in May 2016 have issued a retraction.  The original article demonstrated that NgAgo was an Argonaut-based DNG-guided endonuclease that could be used to knock out or replace genes more accurately and with greater versatility than CRISPR/Cas.  After publication, many researchers tried to replicate the results with little success.  The authors retracted the study citing scientists’ inability to replicate the main finding.
