Crispr is now about rna editing (not as often genome editing) 3d cultures to form organoids and study those big in research nowadays. Md symptoms: md results in classical sarcopenia = severe muscle mass loss, md can affect select muscle groups, result in different types of md, muscle loss loss of trophic factors released from muscles. Md subtypes (1) different presentation/symptoms (2) onset (3) genes affected, up to 20 types)** Beck"s/becker"s md (bmd) later onset than dmd: duche(cid:374)(cid:374)e"s md (dmd) early onset, myoto(cid:374)ic/stei(cid:374)ert"s md adult onset, face and neck muscles affected.
