Tightly Controllable Cas9 Genome Editor Could Be Useful for Gene Drive Regulation

July 6, 2018

(GenomeWeb) – Researchers from the University of Bath and Cardiff University in the UK have developed a way to tightly control CRISPR-Cas9-based genome editing using a cheap derivative of lysine. They noted that such a system could have broad applications, and that it is a first step towards purposed, spatiotemporal regulation of gene drives over large geographical ranges.
