CRISPR (Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats) gene editing refers is a technology built around a novel immune protective mechanism evolved in prokaryotes to guard against viral infection by placing fragments of viral genes between palindromic sequences. Using a modified system, we can “guide” RNA to modify a specific nucleic acid sequence and edit the genome with a cell.

This is a revolutionary approach to genetic engineering because it allows us to knockout, insert, or modify specific genes. We provide CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing services on iPSCs and allow investigators to develop better disease models.
