A New Tool for Genetically Engineering the Oldest Branch of Life

Mar. 8, 2017 — A new study has documented the use of CRISPR-Cas9 mediated genome editing in the third domain of life, Archaea, for the first time. Their groundbreaking work has the potential to vastly accelerate ... read more

Genome Editing: Pressing the 'Delete' Button on DNA

Mar. 2, 2017 — Until recently, genomics was a 'read-only' science, but scientists have developed a tool for quick and easy deletion of DNA in living cells. This software will boost efforts to understand ... read more

Nature Can Beat Back Scientific Tinkering With Genes of Entire Species

Mar. 1, 2017 — Scientists have revealed daunting challenges to changing the DNA of entire populations of species via the most promising techniques available today to produce 'gene ... read more

Gene-Edited Pigs Show Signs of Resistance to Major Viral Disease

Feb. 23, 2017 — Scientists have produced pigs that may be protected from an infection that costs the swine industry billions each year. The team have used advanced genetic techniques to produce pigs that are ... read more

Microbe, Virus Co-Evolution: Model of CRISPR, Phage Co-Evolution Explains Confusing Experimental Results

Feb. 21, 2017 — A new study suggests that researchers planning to use the CRISPR genome-editing system to produce designer gut bacteria may need to account for the dynamic evolution of the microbial immune ... read more

Pig Gene Advance Could Boost Sperm Stocks from Prized Animals

Jan. 13, 2017 — Gene-editing techniques could help to improve stocks of farmed pigs by boosting supplies of sperm from prized sires. Scientists have created male pigs that could be used as surrogates capable of ... read more

Jan. 11, 2017 — Scientists have performed the first all-atom molecular dynamics simulations of Cas9-catalyzed DNA cleavage in action. The simulations shed light on the process of Cas9 genome editing and helped ... read more

Jan. 4, 2017 — Researchers have identified a mutation that prompts bacterial cells to acquire genetic memories 100 times more frequently than they do naturally. This discovery provides a powerful research tool and ... read more

An Anti-CRISPR for Gene Editing

Dec. 8, 2016 — Researchers have discovered a way to program cells to inhibit CRISPR-Cas9 activity. 'Anti-CRISPR' proteins had previously been isolated from viruses that infect bacteria, but now scientists ... read more

Dec. 5, 2016 — Plant biologists have developed a genome editing method to knockout target genes in a model plant with high efficiency. The team reports a new CRISPR/Cas9 vector for the model plant that can strongly ... read more

Nov. 21, 2016 — Researchers have developed a new method for reading the history and "family trees" of cells. Called MEMOIR, or Memory by Engineered Mutagenesis with Optical In situ Readout, the technique ... read more

Nov. 18, 2016 — Bacteria can boost their own immune systems by "talking" to each other, surprising new research shows. This research provides new insight into how groups of bacteria collectively defend ... read more

Sep. 22, 2016 — A team's finding that CRISPR-Cas9 is a reliable method for multi-gene editing of this particular plant species has been released in a new article. The technology, a genome-editing tool called ... read more

Sep. 5, 2016 — For (probably) the first time ever, plants modified with the "genetic scissors" CRISPR-Cas9 has been cultivated, harvested and cooked. D professor in Plant Cell and Molecular Biology served ... read more

Genome-Wide Toxoplasma Screen Reveals Mechanisms of Parasitic Infections

Sep. 1, 2016 — Researchers have conducted the first genome-wide screen in Apicomplexa, a phylum of single-celled parasites that cause diseases such as malaria and toxoplasmosis. The screen sheds light into the ... read more

Probing How CRISPR-Cas9 Works

Aug. 26, 2016 — A new study reveals important new details about the inner workings of the CRISPR-Cas9 machinery in live cells that may have implications for the development of therapeutics that use the powerful gene ... read more

Aug. 26, 2016 — A research team has succeeded in developing 'Target-AID', a genome editing technique that does not cleave the DNA. The technique offers, through high-level editing operation, a method to ... read more

Aug. 18, 2016 — Researchers have identified the protein that norovirus uses to invade cells. Norovirus is the most common viral cause of diarrhea worldwide, but scientists still know little about how it infects ... read more
