Gene Editing Companies (December 2018)

I’ve put together the list of Gene/Genome/DNA editing business below. I’ve listed companies who seem to be primarily service or research apps businesses below the main list, however the distinction isn’t always clear as they may have some novel technology as well as.

These are all the editing companies I’m aware of. If you know of any more, or have any corrections for the list, let me know!
