CRISPR/Cas9-Mediated NHEJ Mutations in Anastrepha suspensa Paves Way for HDR

In an a recent experiment published in Gene, Li and Handler (2019) utilized readily available study systems and newly emerging genetic technologies and demonstrated both germline and somatic CRISPR/Cas9 induced mutations in Anastrepha ludens. The creation of heritable mutations was […]

CRISPR to go – a guide to gene editing Tephritid flies at remote facilities

Sim et al. (2018) recently published a paper in Insect Molecular Biology describing CRISPR/Cas 9 methods for gene editing in three genera of Tephritid fruit flies: Anastrepha, Bactrocera, and Ceratitis. CRISPR/Cas9 allows for targeted gene editing through homology driven repair […]
