NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – An international team led by researchers in the US and Japan has developed a new CRISPR method which it claims solves the problem of inefficient targeted DNA cassette insertion in the engineering of animal models.

The team described the method — called Efficient additions with ssDNA inserts-CRISPR or Easi-CRISPR — in Genome Biology today.
