Incorporating splicing and other clues from muscle transcripts, researchers reached diagnoses in cases that were inconclusive after sequencing alone.

Exonics will use the funding to advance preclinical research from UT-Southwestern researcher Eric Olson on genome editing of DMD mutations in a mouse model.

UT-SWMC researcher Eric Olson will study dystrophin produced with CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing in a mouse model, as well as off-target effects.

While gain-of-function mutations lead to congenital arhinia, inactivating mutations lead to an adult-onset muscular dystrophy, the researchers reported.

The company's Irys genome mapping technology provides researchers with a non-sequencing-based tool that is essential for studying structural variation.

The grant from the California Institute of Regenerative Medicine will fund research on two approaches to DMD gene therapy using CRISPR/Cas9.

The agreement gives CRISPR Therapeutics access to a technology to create skeletal muscle stem cells for use in research on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
