In a recent Nature Communications publication Weinberg et al., (2019) report developing and testing a repertoire of inducible site-specific recombinases capable of being activated by different inducers such as small molecules, light, and temperature. While developed and tested in mammalian cells and transgenic mice, they will be widely useful in insect systems.
Blanco-Redondo and Langenhan (2018) report recently in G3 valuable improvements in the φC31 system that enable the simultaneous targeted integration of two transgenes into distinct landing sites using a single source of φC31 recombinase. The development of modern genetic engineering […]
Koen Venken and colleagues have just published an excellent review of ‘Genome Engineering: Drosophila melanogaster and beyond‘ that is comprehensive and highly informative, and should serve as a useful reference for anyone interested in genome modification techniques with nucleotide precision […]
