Gene Silencing/Gene Editing

News on CRISPR, gene editing, RNAi in genetics, genomics, and molecular diagnostics.

The technology is designed to enable more efficient targeted DNA cassette insertion in the engineering of animal models.

The team searched for coding and noncoding elements involved in acquired resistance to cytarabine, the main treatment for acute myeloid leukemia.

The team's approach discovered cell-essential and human embryonic stem cell-essential genes in karyotypically stable human pluripotent stem cells

The researchers have made the pipeline, called CRISPRdisco, free for other scientists to use through Github, and are hoping the community will also help refine and update it.

The team unexpectedly found that some supposedly essential yeast genes are dispensable, and that other essential genes have large dispensable regions.

LGC Acquires Lucigen

American scientists find themselves once again warning the Trump administration not to dismiss science, the New Yorker report.

A new study suggests CRISPR could be used to save coral reefs from dying off, Forbes reports.

Researchers have found that the i-motif shape of DNA previously observed in the lab also exists in human cells, and that it may serve a purpose.

In PNAS this week: a genomic, transcriptomic, and metabolomic analysis of the tea plant, Arabidopsis thaliana's adaptations to specific local environments, and more.
