Booming Gene Editing Market to Pep Up These 5 Biotech Stocks

The biotech space has been booming in the past decade, with areas like gene editing stealing the show as they increase scope for treating life-threatening diseases. Gene editing or genome engineering is a process in which a DNA is inserted, modified or replaced in the genome of any living organism. In recent years, scientists have been using gene editing technology to help treat diseases with a genomic basis, like cystic fibrosis, diabetes and cancer.

CRISPR or “Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats” is a tool primarily used to edit genes at present. Many scientists believe that this year could be a breakthrough in finding cures for cancer in DNA and investors could get familiar with terms like CRISPR and precision medicine to make the most out of advancements in this space.

Additionally, the coronavirus outbreak has pushed scientists to look for a cure through gene editing, as this novel virus keeps wreaking havoc and claiming millions of lives globally.

Disruptive Biotech Making a Mark in 2020

New Automotive Crash Test Dummies Market Research Highlights Recovery Path for Businesses from COVID-19 based on the Type – Male Crash Test Dummies, Female Crash Test Dummies, and Child Crash Test Dummies| Technavio

LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The new Automotive Crash Test Dummies Market Research from Technavio indicates Negative and Inferior growth in the short term as the business impact of COVID-19 spreads.

“One of the primary growth drivers for this market is the emergence of autonomous and connected vehicles,” says a senior analyst for the Consumer Discretionary industry at Technavio. In recent years, automobiles have witnessed notable automation such as automatic door lock system, automatic heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system, automatic wiper systems, and automatic transmission system. This development in the automotive industry has paved the need for vehicles that are completely autonomous. However, connected vehicles and autonomous vehicles need to be tested in different accident scenarios. These testing methods require crash test dummies for analyzing the impact, which, in turn, will augment the growth prospects of this market. As the markets recover Technavio expects the automotive crash test dummies market size to grow by USD 4.06 million during the period 2020-2024.

Who Won the Vice Presidential Debate Between Pence and Harris? Analysis and Highlights

Who Won the Vice Presidential Debate Between Pence and Harris? Analysis and Highlights

In his Wednesday night debate with Senator Kamala Harris, Vice President Mike Pence defended Donald Trump as ably as anyone could, given that the resurgent COVID-19 crisis, which Pence is in charge of handling, meant that the debate had to be conducted with plexiglass dividers.

This combination of pictures created on Wednesday shows Vice President Mike Pence and Democratic vice presidential nominee, Senator Kamala Harris during the vice presidential debate in Kingsbury Hall at the University of Utah.

But it’s likely that nothing Pence said threatened former Vice President Joe Biden’s lead. And nothing he did dislodged a determined fly from his head where it landed—and stayed—for nearly two minutes as he championed the Trump administration’s support for law enforcement.

The fly was the elephant in the room, as it were: a reminder that no matter how strongly Pence portrayed the administration through its accomplishments, it’s impossible to ignore the missteps.

Harris and Pence’s 90-minute debate at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City was the calm after the storm that was the debate between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden. Both wanted more time to address voters during their one and only debate, but they kept the interruptions to a minimum, although they argued over what constituted a “fact.”

Harris scored in finding an opportunity to share her personal story as the daughter of a Jamaican father and Indian mother. She also avoided moments that would make it easy to dismiss her as an “angry Black woman” or “unlikeable”—unfair but unavoidable standards that a woman, and especially a woman of color, probably had to meet.

Throughout the night, Pence consistently
