Mapping the coevolution, leadership and financing of research on viral vectors, RNAi, CRSPR/Cas9 and other genomic editing technologies
In the present investigation, we set out to determine and compare the evolution of the research on viral vectors, RNAi and genomic editing platforms as well as determine the profile of the mainExpand
Building grower-consumer alliances for confronting the coffee crisis
That same year, a group of researchers formed a network based on long-term relationships with various Latin American farming communities, all of which were suffering the effects of the crash inExpand
Funding CRISPR: Understanding the role of government and private sector actors in transformative innovation systems
We present a model of co-funding networks for CRISPR/Cas research at the University of California and the Broad/Harvard/MIT systems, using funding acknowledgments to build connections, and use a novel technique to analyse the relationships between the structures of the co- funding networks, the phase of research, and funding sources.
