Hello CRISPR Medicine News Readers

Safer genome editing through benchmarking of Cas nucleases

Different kinds of natural and engineered Cas nucleases differ in their binding and cleavage specificities. These differences are essential to consider when deciding which nuclease to use for a given purpose. A new platform for massive parallel kinetic profiling, NucleaSeq, reveals standardised benchmarks of Cas nucleases. This can help scientists when designing experiments and might lead to more efficient and safer gene editing therapies.
