DuPont Pioneer, Caribou identify CRISPR-Cas9 targets

· May 2, 2017

Caribou Biosciences, a leading company in CRISPR-Cas genome engineering, and DuPont Pioneer have published a new method for comprehensively mapping CRISPR-Cas9 cleavage sites across the genome of any organism. When comparing SITE-Seq against other off-target analysis techniques, SITE-Seq detected potential off-target cleavage sites with a higher degree of resolution. This study has significant implications for […]
