Gene Drive in a Major Agricultural Pest

In a recent report in PNAS, Buchman et al. (2018) describe the construction and development of a MEDEA-based gene drive system in the crop pest, Drosophila suzukii. Buchman et al revisited the MEDEA-based gene drive approach developed in D. melanogaster […]

Optimizing Gene Drive Performance

Roggenkamp et al 2018, in a recent publication in G3:Genes, Genomes, Genetics provide an in-depth analysis of potential ways that gene drive mechanisms can be regulated by targeting four conserved elements which would be found in any CRISPR/Cas9 based gene […]
