"A bacterial enzyme that uses guide RNA molecules to target DNA for cleavage has been adopted as a programmable tool to site-specifically modify genomes of cells and organisms, from bacteria and human cells to whole zebrafish."

there taking the dna out of zebrafish and changeing it. there changing the genome. they used the bacterial enzyme that guids rna to dna as a tool to change genomes of cells in a orginism. Its like they take the dna that gives the fish black stripes and alter it to blue and then inject it in another fish and the fish becomes white and blue.
