Parkinson’s and Batten’s Disease are two neurodegenerative diseases with hereditary components. Using C. elegans as a model organism, this research combines CRISPR and RNAi, using transformation, to treat the diseases. The bacterial ingestion of the combined elements by the C. elegans should correct the genetic mutation in the offspring.
