The genom scissors

The development of genome editing techniques also gave rise to the CRISPR-method. Based on a bacterial defense system this method allows editing of DNA and RNA strains in biotechnological experiments.

  • A Trojan horse against tuberculosis

    Tuberculosis is still the infectious disease that is responsible for the highest number of deaths worldwide. It is caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis, a bacterium that infects cells in the lungs. There, the pathogen is hardly accessible to most antibiotics. In addition, resistance to existing drug more

  • Enzymes of a feather: CRISPR-Cas components work together to enhance protection from viruses

    Researchers from Skoltech and their colleagues from Russia and the US have shown that the two components of the bacterial CRISPR-Cas immunity system, one that destroys foreign genetic elements such as viruses and another that creates "memories" of foreign genetic elements by storing fragments of the more

  • CRISPR discovery paves the way for novel COVID testing method

    Am I infected with SARS-CoV-2? Is it one of the dangerous variants? Being able to answer these and more questions with a single efficient diagnostic test can be decisive for gauging the spread of disease and selecting the right therapy. In a study published in the journal "Science", researchers from more

Science Café: CRISPR/Cas

"There is no shortage of optimism about the scientific potential of CRISPR–Cas9, a technique that can precisely alter the genomes of everything from wheat to elephants", as an article in NATURE states. How exactly does this new technique work? How does it change the lab routine? What are potenti ... more

How GMOs are regulated… or not

Set your gene guns to stun as we explore the curious landscape of GMO regulations in the U.S. Critics say the Obama Administration balked on an opportunity to update Reagan-era guidelines on how agencies like the Department of Agriculture regulate foods with edited genes. What does this means fo ... more
