Genetic Engineering Mechanism Visualized

04:05 EST 4 Dec 2017 | Lab Bulletin

Researchers at Kanazawa University and the University of Tokyo report in Nature Communications the visualization of the dynamics of ‘molecular scissors’ — the main mechanism of the CRISPR-Cas9 genetic-engineering technique.

HS-AFM movies of DNA cleavage by Cas9–RNAOne of the techniques used in genetic engineering — the process of artificially modifying the genome of a living organism — involves the so-called CRISPR-Cas9 nuclease system.  Using this system, a cell’s DNA can be cut at a desired site, where genes can be deleted or added....
