NgAgo Gene Editing Study Retracted

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.
