Genome editing subtopics

CRISPR-Cas9 Technology Information

Revolutionizing the field of genome editing
The transformative CRISPR-Cas9 technology is revolutionizing the field of genome editing. Able to achieve highly flexible and specific targeting, the CRISPR-Cas9 system can be modified and redirected to become a powerful tool for genome editing in broad applications such as stem cell engineering, gene therapy, tissue and animal disease models, and engineering disease-resistant transgenic plants. We've put together a collection of resources that we hope will give you the confidence to get started and to continuously improve your research.

Designer TALEN Technology Information

Precise and extraordinarily flexible genome editing
TAL effectors are a widely used technology for precise and efficient gene editing in live cells. This genome editing technology is known to function in a variety of host systems, including bacteria, yeast, plants, insects, zebrafish, and mammals. Thermo Fisher Scientific has secured rights to certain proprietary methods related to TALENs, clarifying a path for you to move confidently forward and innovate. We've put together a collected of resources that we hope will give you the confidence to get started and to continuously improve research using designer TALENs.
