Synthego Online CRISPR Tools
Synthego has released online CRISPR tools that make more than 100,000 genomes accessible for gene knockout guide design. The tools include a guide designer, a design validator, and the ability to order CRISPR guide RNA. Researchers can select a desired gene of interest from a curated list of genomes representing more than 9,000 species. The Synthego tool then uses several built-in algorithms to instantly generate guide designs and recommendations for the most efficient guides with low off-target effects and highest likelihood to knock out the function of a gene, the firm said. Additional features include the ability to validate, share, and purchase synthetic single guide RNA. The new tools are free to use and available at design.synthego.com.
