The last years showed the rise of CRISPR/Cas9 to stardom. Several features such as programmability, specificity, and efficiency, make it to be a technique of choice for genome editing even in processes where basic aspects are not understood. However, scientific, technical and society driven challenges remain. To cope with these challenges, further research, technological improvements, translational studies as well as an open exchange between laboratories and the society are required.
