The company has taken an exclusive license to the Casɸ proteins and is working to characterize their capabilities to determine how they can best be used.

The seven technologies feature different methods, including CRISPR and microfluidics, and can be performed in many settings and with a variety of sample types.

Editing Squid

Researchers have used CRISPR-Cas9 to efficiently target a cephalopod pigmentation gene, as they report in Current Biology.

Caspr's assay can be transported at room temperature and performed without complex external equipment, making it ideal for low-resource environments.

The research network said in a statement that precision breeding techniques are needed to achieve the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.
