Largest study of CRISPR-Cas9 mutations creates prediction tool for gene editing
(Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute) The largest study of CRISPR action to date has developed a method to predict the exact mutations CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing can introduce to a cell. Researchers at the Wellcome Sanger Institute edited 40,000 different pieces of DNA and analysed a thousand million resulting DNA sequences to develop the machine learning predictive tool. Reported today in Nature Biotechnology the new resource will help make CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing more reliable, cheaper and more efficient. (Source: EurekAlert! - Biology)
