Chinese biologists reiterate doubts over validity of genome editing study
A number of Chinese scientists have announced publicly that they cannot replicate the breakthrough genome editing technology NgAgo discovered by a Hebei-based researcher Sonny Gray Jersey , Han Chunyu, urging to investigate his team for the sake of "reputation of Chinese scientists."


After months of study, 13 biologists including Wei Wensheng and Sun Yujie from Peking University's School of Life Science, and other biologists from prestigious institutes such as the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Zhejiang University and Shanghai Jiao Tong University Aroldis Chapman Jersey , said publicly that they cannot replicate Han's results, and called on Han to publicize his raw data.


Han, 42, an associate professor at Hebei University of Science and Technology (HUST), discovered how to use the bacterial enzyme NgAgo to replicate and edit DNA and published his findings in the journal Nature Biotechnology on May 2.


According to the university C.C. Sabathia Jersey , NgAgo is the first Chinese-invented top-notch biotechnology, breaking the foreign monopoly on genome editing processes. The technology has extensive applications for agriculture and medicine, including in gene therapy for diseases like AIDS and hepatitis B.


The scholars hope authorities will launch an academic investigation into the university and related departments to protect the reputation of Chinese scientists, Sun Yujie, an assistant professor Greg Bird Jersey , told the Global Times on Tuesday, adding that they have not received any response from authorities as of press time.


Han's discovery was highly praised in China after the publication of the findings, which some media said was worthy of a Nobel Prize.


Han was also elected Vice President of the Hebei Association
