Cas9 gene editing in butterflies.

Butterflies are exceptionally diverse but their potential as an experimental system has been limited by the difficulty of deciphering heterozygous gen...

Cas9 Gene Editing.
The CRISPR/Cas9 system has emerged as an important tool in biomedical research for a wide range of applications, with significant potential for genome engineering and gene therapy. In order to achieve conditional control of the CRISPR/Cas9 system, a

Cas9-mediated gene editing in human tripronuclear zygotes.
Genome editing tools such as the clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeat (CRISPR)-associated system (Cas) have been widely used to modify genes in model systems including animal zygotes and human cells, and hold tremendous promise fo

Cas9 gene editing technology studies.
The clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeat (CRISPR)/CRISPR-associated protein 9 (Cas9) system is an adaptive immune defense system that resists the invasion of viruses and plasmids heterologous genetic material in bacteria and archa

Cas9 Technology.
Until very recently, the prospect of introducing mutations or exogenous DNA sequences at precise locations in the genomes of plants and animals was difficult, if not impossible. This rapidly changed with the demonstration that the type II CRISPR-Cas

Cas9 and rAAV Templates for Efficient Gene Editing.
Altering endogenous genes in cells is an integral tool of modern cell biology. The ease-of-use of the CRISPR/Cas9 system to introduce genomic DNA breaks at specific sites in vivo has led to its rapid and wide adoption. In the absence of a DNA templat

CRISPR-Cas9 Genome Editing in Drosophila.
The CRISPR-Cas9 system has transformed genome engineering of model organisms from possible to practical. CRISPR-Cas9 can be readily programmed to generate sequence-specific double-strand breaks that disrupt targeted loci when repaired by error-prone

Cas9 and genome editing in Drosophila.
Recent advances in our ability to design DNA binding factors with specificity for desired sequences have resulted in a revolution in genetic engineering, enabling directed changes to the genome to be made relatively easily. Traditional techniques for

Cas9 system produces specific and homozygous targeted gene editing in rice in one generation.
The CRISPR/Cas9 system has been demonstrated to efficiently induce targeted gene editing in a variety of organisms including plants. Recent work showed that CRISPR/Cas9-induced gene mutations in Arabidopsis were mostly somatic mutations in the early

Photoactivatable CRISPR-Cas9 for optogenetic genome editing.
We describe an engineered photoactivatable Cas9 (paCas9) that enables optogenetic control of CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing in human cells. paCas9 consists of split Cas9 fragments and photoinducible dimerization domains named Magnets. In response to blue
