AMSBIO announces the introduction of CRISPR/Cas9 - a full gene editing tool designed to produce a genetically modified cell using any mammalian cell line and targeting any gene.


CRISPR/Cas9 is revolutionizing the field of genomic editing by providing scientists with a powerful tool able to change any gene, in any cell in a highly targeted manner and without introducing foreign DNA. The benefits of CRISPR/Cas9 over previous forms of gene editing, such as TALENs and zinc finger, are that it is much simpler to implement and has higher efficiency at performing bi-allelic gene modifications. Using CRISPPR/Cas9 technology it is now possible to create knock-in, knock-outs and mutations of any gene in any cell line.


The latest tool in genome editing – CRISPR/Cas9 allows for specific genome disruption and replacement in a flexible and simple system resulting in high specificity and low cell toxicity. The CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing system requires the...
