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.

News CRISPR

  • Powerful new tool in the CRISPR genome editing toolbox

    A recently discovered hypercompact CRISPR enzyme found only in huge bacteriophages, and known as CRISPR-CasΦ, is functional, a new study by Patrick Pausch, Jennifer Doudna and colleagues reports, and it provides a powerful new tool in the CRISPR genome editing toolbox, including because it can targe more

  • Listeria protein provides a CRISPR 'kill switch'

    A single protein derived from a common strain of bacteria found in the soil will offer scientists a more precise way to edit RNA. The protein, called AcrVIA1, can halt the CRISPR-Cas13 editing process, according to new research from Cornell, Rockefeller University and the Memorial Sloan Kettering Ca more

  • Overactive enzyme causes hereditary hypertension

    After more than 40 years, several teams at the MDC and ECRC have now made a breakthrough discovery with the help of two animal models: they have proven that an altered gene encoding the enzyme PDE3A causes an inherited form of high blood pressure. This could lead to new concepts for the treatment of 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
