Interesting paper. So there is some progress being made on the delivery strategys of CRISPR. All of the currently used vectors seem to have limitations, though. The adeno-associated virus (AAV) was stated to have a 'small cargo size'.

Out of all the possible vectors named in that study, which do you think is the most relevant in the long term? Would you put your money on the adenoviral and lentiviral vectors, or on the lipid and polymer based vectors?
