Addgene Review:  CRISPRs 101


The newest tools in the genome engineering toolbox are Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats (CRISPR). This technology uses a short guide RNA to specifically target DNA and  a CRISPR associated (Cas) nuclease to cleave DNA. Learn more and find the newest plasmids in our Guide to CRISPRs.
