Knock-out and Knock-in technologies enable researchers to modify genes in a chosen model system, and thus, can reveal a lot about how a gene functions. However, while these two methods may sound like complementary opposites, their purpose and design can actually have major differences. In this whitepaper we will discuss the available Knock-out and Knock-in methods, and how they differ, so that you can determine which is best-suited for your experiment.
Summary The CRISPR-Cas9 system has become integral in the toolbelts of genomic scientists, researchers, students, etc. Never has it been so easy to wield a pair of molecular scissors in your (pipetting) hand, however, there are a few intracellular processes to consider before cutting up your genome of interest. In this article, we will give …
Here at InVivo Biosystems we spend a lot of time thinking, and talking, about genome editing. We thought it would be fun to compile a list of our frequently used terms – so here they are, our ABCs of genetic research.
In this article we discuss Weissbourd’s recent publication as well as GCaMP more broadly, showing how advancing technology has enabled researchers to ask questions that span disciplines and model organism species.
