CRISPR Biological Tape: Recording Cellular Events Over Time

Synthetic biologists have previously used CRISPR to store poems, books, and images in DNA, but now researchers for the first time used CRISPR to record cellular activity and the timing ...

EditR: A Tool to Estimate Base Editing by Sanger Sequencing

EditR (Edit deconvolution by inference of traces in R) as a free web tool ( or an open source R Shiny application that can run on a local desktop.

Cas9 takes 6 hours to find its target sequence!

A research group at Uppsala University has found out how CRISPR-Cas9 — also known as ‘molecular scissors’ — can search the genome for a specific DNA sequence.

Microcapsules to enhance the efficiency of genome-editing

A paper published in Nanomedicine: Nanotechnology, Biology and Medicine described a polymer and hybrid silica-coated microcapsules that are more efficient in genome-editing when applying ...

A Molecular Switch for CRISPR: Anti-CRISPR

For many bacteria, one line of defense against viral infection is a sophisticated RNA-guided “immune system” called CRISPR-Cas.

CRISPR gene editing reveals new therapeutic approach for sickle cell disease

An international team of scientists led by researchers at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has found a way to use CRISPR gene editing to help fix sickle cell disease and beta-thalassemia ...
