The purpose of this article is to walk you through the steps needed to overexpress genes using CRISPR/Cas9-based activation (CRISPRa). A broader overview of this topic (including CRISPR-based repression) can be found here. CRISPR/Cas9 is more than a programmable nuclease. When stripped of its nuclease activity, it can activate and repress transcription, alter chromatin structure,…
