The New Smallest Version of CRISPR-Cas9 Has Been Discovered

The other day on Bioscription, we discussed the South Korean Institute for Basic Science (IBS) and their work with CRISPR-Cpf1 in soybeans. Today, the same organization has released a study on a new form of CRISPR-Cas9 that they isolated from Campylobacter jejuni. This resulted in the acronym CjCas9 for it. A Problem Of Size A […]

New CRISPR-Cpf1 Used To Make Soybeans Healthier With No DNA Change

CRISPR’s capabilities have been expanded once again, this time to be used to increase the amount of healthy fats in soybeans. Let’s skip right into the details for once without any backstory. To The Research! Researchers at the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) in South Korea have been working on their own variant of CRISPR […]
