Bombyx mori

standard Strongly and Ubiquitously Expressed Promoter for Lepidoptera

The number of genetic technologies available for the study of the silkworm, Bombyx mori, is second only to those available for Drosophila melanogaster. Germ-line transformation, enhancer-trapping, genome editing/modification using CRISPRs, TALENS, ZFNs  are all established technologies in B. mori. But, […]

standard Development, Growth & Differentiation Devote Issue to Genome Editing

Genome editing with engineered nucleases is an emerging technology that enables manipulation of targeted genes in many organisms and cell lines. Development, Growth & Differentiation has devoted an entire issue to genome editing.  The paper describing the successful use of […]
