CRISPR gets a transposon upgrade

10:38 EDT 8 Jul 2019 | Synbiobeta

In order to improve CRISPR’s efficiency and accuracy, two research groups – one from Columbia University and another from MIT and Harvard –  independently showed that it is possible to insert DNA sequences into the genome using the CRISPR enzyme coupled with transposon elements. This breakthrough enriches the CRISPR arsenal with an efficient way to […]
