Technology Topics


standard Editing Methylation States

Editing DNA nucleotide sequences has become common place but using the programmability of RNA-guided endonucleases to affect other changes to the genome are less developed although their potential for making such changes is quite high.  Liu et al. report on […]


standard In Vivo CRISPR Multiplexing In Insects

Producing multiple sgRNAs from a single RNA polymerase II (Pol II) – transcript would enable multiplexed mutagenesis and gene editing as well as  the possibility of precisely regulating the expression of sgRNAs in specific  temporal and spatial patterns.  Port and […]
