Technology Topics

standard Short-Half Life Cas9 Improves Mutagenesis

Reducing the half-life of Cas9 has some positive and unexpected impacts on the  efficiency of mutatgenesis, according Tu et al (2017) in a paper they just published in Scientific Reports. Tu et al were primarily interested in applying Cas9 mutagenesis […]

standard Rapid Generation of Hypomorphic Mutations

While CRISPR/Cas9 has made null mutations easier to obtained, Arthur et al (2017) describe a general method for creating hypomorphic mutations that should further enable our abilities to tune levels of gene expression to suite particular needs. Eliminating a gene’s […]
