In hindsight, the pandemic may have been that turning point for gene-based medicine. The authorization of the first vaccines using messenger RNA validated a segment of the life sciences industry that seemed destined for some futuristic version of healthcare. Genome sequencing and gene editing have been around for several years.
Beam Therapeutics is pioneering the use of base editing - a potential new class of precision genetic medicines. This is way above my pay grade so let's look at the charts of BEAM. In this daily bar chart of BEAM, below, we can see that prices made a base in the $20-$30 area before rallying to a high in February above $120.
