- Researchers in the University of California have found a cheaper way to target CRISPR-Cas9 to cut and label DNA. CRISPR, invented three years ago at UC Berkeley, has revolutionized genomics, allowing researchers to easily bind to specific sequences of DNA and manipulate them.
- The new technique allows uses a method called CRISPR-EATING (Everything Available Turned Into New Guides) to more easily target binding regions by creating RNA guide probes to label repeating regions in the nucleus.
- This breakthrough will allow scientists to essentially track an entire chromosome and follow it live throughout its development.
