1/ crypto compression
2/ CRISPR and deep learning
your opinion plizzzzz !!!

Crypto compression - there isn't a lot an undergrad can contribute to the subject without a whole lot of research and original work. Industrial consensus is to use the publicly available and time-tested algorithms. Self designed crypto algorithms then to have flaws and crypto analysts would find those flaws quickly.

CRISPR is gene splicing technology. Hope you are good in biology ! And the second thing is AI - are you following it or have you taken any AI courses? You better ask your professor what he is expecting for this topic. I honestly don't know how gene splicing knowledge can be analyzed usefully by deep learning - genes are specific to each species. What works in mice do not work on humans. And gene editing on humans is an ethical problem that govenments debate upon whether to allow research or not. Maybe you can work on cows and focus on producing better milk - :) But there is also a movement against consuming genetically modified food. Or maybe you can focus on eliminating a specific genetic disease in cows and other cow like species - you know, to save them from extinction.

I would talk to your professor about it first. Gene editing on humans is an on-going debate as to whether it is right or wrong. For people who say it is a right thing to do, those people are thinking of the positive things gene editing will enable us to do, like as you say, eliminate some cancers. However, some people say what if we use gene editing to make 'custom babies' for parents or attempt breed a super intelligent future human race, isn't that tampering with nature? And those people are also right too, because we have done things with only a little knowledge of how nature really works and they have backfired. Like introducing new animals in an habitat to eliminate 'pests', Well the pests have certainly disappeared, but now the new animal we introduced are king and bred like crazy and they become the new pests. My example is not specifically gene editing related, but it illustrates how little we know about nature, and it is that line of thinking - that we still don't know enough scientific understanding of many things, so we shouldn't tamper with nature. Who knows how a society of 'custom bred humans' would turn out?

My direct knowledge on CRISPR is about nil, but my sister is a retired research scientist in the field of pharmaceuticals.

She is knowledgeable of CRISPR.
Your university advisor will know what's best for you.
But from my sister's input on the subject in the past, you're going to need an advanced degree in at least biochemistry.
Generalities:
A Masters will enable you to be 'hands'
A PhD will position you as a potential researcher.
