PNAS lifts embargo early for tenth time this year, following break
The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) lifted the embargo on a study early on Monday, following an embargo break. Here’s the top of the message that went out to the journal’s media list at 2:38 p.m. Eastern, 22 minutes before the scheduled embargo lift:
PNAS is lifting the embargo on the following paper. All other articles are under the scheduled embargo:
* Gene drive for malaria mosquito control
Researchers report a prototype CRISPR/Cas9-based gene drive system for engineering malarial parasite resistance in mosquitoes.
The journal tells us this ZME Science story — which was taken down — was posted ahead of the embargo.
PNAS lifted the embargo early 11 times last year.
