Manipulating the genome function

Home / Manipulating the gene function using modifications of the CRISPR/Cas technologies

We have substantial experience with the use of numerous modifications of Cas9 protein which have been recruited to perform the tasks of either activation and repression of the desired gene targets, as well as deposition or interpretation of the epigenetic environment of the region-of-choice, mediated by either DNA or histone modification.
