  • Cre-Controlled CRISPR: conditional gene inactivation just got easier

    The ability to turn a gene off only in a specific cell type is essential to modern life science. Thanks to the Cre-Controlled CRISPR it has just became simpler. The new method developed by researchers from the Center for Regenerative Therapies Dresden (CRTD) at TU Dresden with support from the DRESD more

  • Anti-cancer drug’s mode of operation deciphered

    Rituximab, an anti-cancer drug targeting the membrane protein CD20, was the first approved therapeutic antibody against B tumor cells. Immunologists at the University of Freiburg have now solved a mystery about how it works. A team headed by Professor Dr. Michael Reth used cell cultures, healthy cel more

  • Detecting CRISPR/Cas gene doping

    All athletes want to be at the top of their game when they compete, but some resort to nefarious approaches to achieve peak muscle growth, speed and agility. Recent developments in gene editing technology could tempt athletes to change their DNA to get an edge. Now, researchers reporting in ACS' Ana 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
