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

  • New CRISPR-based tool can probe and control several genetic circuits at once

    Every cell in our body has a computer-like control system that sends biological signals through thousands of circuits to monitor the cell's needs and regulate its responses. But when diseases such as cancer arise, these regulatory circuits often go awry, resulting in unnatural signals and responses. more

  • Fine-tuning gene scissors

    The CRISPR-Cas9 gene-editing tool makes it possible to modify the genetic material of organisms. But CRISPR technology is not perfect. Frequently, these molecular “scissors” also make incisions in genetic regions that have a similar appearance to the target sequence. Researchers at the Berlin Instit more

  • Gene scissors against incurable muscular disease

    Duchenne type muscular dystrophy (DMD) is the most common hereditary muscular disease among children. A Munich based team has developed a gene therapy that may provide permanent relief for those suffering from DMD. LMU researcher Eckhard Wolf was involved in the study. Muscles need dystrophin in ord 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
