Prof. Hyungbum Kim (Yonsei University College of Medicine, IBS Professor) has been awarded ‘STAR (Science Technology And Researcher)’ of May 2019. STAR is an award to appoint the most outstanding and contributing scientist, issued by the Ministry of Science and ICT, Korea. Prof. Kim is one of the leading scientists well-known for CRISPR/Cas 9 in Korea. Prof. Kim and his research team have successfully developed an algorithm by which Artificial Intelligence (AI) could measure the efficiency of CRISPR / Cas 9. “Measuring the efficiency of activating CRISPR/Cas 9 has been an expensive and a time-consuming process. It is such wonderful news that the newly developed algorithm could reduce time and cost of measuring the efficiency of running CRISPR/Cas 9,” Kim said.
