The technology is for gene targeting using endocunleases and homologous recombination, and is the second licensing deal between the parties since April.
The scientists from UC Berkeley and UCSF said their method of introducing gene editing could lead to experiments in T cell function as well as immunotherapies.
CRISPR-EATING could enable scientists to create guide RNAs for CRISPR/Cas9 knock-out screens in organisms whose genomes are not yet sequenced.
By using both Fok1-dCas9 fusion proteins and truncated guide RNAs, the scientists were able to achieve a decrease in unwanted indel and point mutations.
The company said the library will be made freely available to academic and non-profit investigators through the DECIPHER Project.
In PLOS this week: gene fusion in premature ovarian failure, population patterns in the Franciscana dolphin, and more.
A National Science Foundation-funded project aims to give researchers access to a network many times faster than the Internet.
Bioethicists weigh the idea of charging patients to take part in clinical research, coming down against the approach.
Cornell's Christopher Mason and his colleagues correct their New York City microbiome study to emphasize "the difference between matching fragments of DNA from a species and a pathogen."
In this online seminar, Jo Vandesompele of the Center for Medical Genetics at Ghent University will discuss methods for improving the analysis of microRNA expression from a range of samples.
