Expanding the CRISPR Toolbox

Expanding the CRISPR Toolbox

The CRISPR-Cas9 system is best known for its ability to knock out or replace specific genes, via targeted cleavage of the genome. But scientists are developing many more applications, typically by using an inactive Cas9 to target other enzymes to specific genomic sites. From transcriptional regulation to base editing, these developments are extending the range of biological questions that can be probed with CRISPR/Cas9.
