Double-strand breaks can produce several different outcomes.

May 1, 2019

CRISPR guide RNAs target specific spots in the genome for the Cas9 enzyme to cut, forming a double-strand break. A machine learning algorithm predicts which types of repairs will be made at a site targeted by a specific guide RNA. Possibilities include an insertion of a single base pair (a), a small deletion (b), or a larger change known as a microhomology deletion (c).
