The scientists discovered two CRISPR/Cas systems in microbial communities, as well as the first Cas9 in archaea, opening the door for new genome-editing technologies.

Researchers suspect Denisovan-like sequences may reflect adaptive introgression of sequences related to brown fat development and cold adaptation.

The Broad Institute has a shot to end the dispute by early 2017 but the more likely outcome is that the parties will argue over whether to fracture the CRISPR IP estate.

Researchers used a metagenomic approach to uncover 2,500 bacterial genomes from sediment and groundwater samples.

Utah's Dana Carroll, UC Berkeley's Jacob Corn, and their colleagues replaced the sickle cell disease mutation with the wild-type gene via HDR.

Researchers describe using a CRISPR approach to edit the sickle cell gene in vitro, the Los Angeles Times reports.

A UC Berkeley team has found that C2c2 cuts RNA indiscriminately after being activated, a trait that could be leveraged to create diagnostics. 

The software combines the output of multiple data projection methods with gene signature information to help users identify meaningful biological processes.

After CRISPR/Cas9 makes a double-strand break in DNA and the cell repairs it, the same set of mutations crop up again and again based on the genomic sequence.

The email, which claimed the Broad Institute did not deserve key CRISPR patents, is one of several attention-grabbing items in newly released documents.
