Magnetogenetics - "using magnetic fields to remotely control cell activity"

"Here, we show that, by complexing magnetic nanoparticles with recombinant baculoviral vectors (MNP-BVs), CRISPR–Cas9-mediated genome editing can be activated locally in vivo via a magnetic field." https://www.nature.com/articles/s41551-018-0318-7
