Strategies for Performing Dynamic Gene Perturbation Experiments in Flowers
Authors:  Diarmuid S. Ó’Maoiléidigh, Emmanuelle Graciet and Frank Wellmer, date: 04/05/2016, view: 2020, Q&A: 0
Dissecting the gene regulatory networks (GRNs) underlying developmental processes is a central goal in biology. The characterization of the GRNs underlying flower development has received considerable attention, however, novel approaches are ...

Production of Guide RNAs in vitro and in vivo for CRISPR Using Ribozymes and RNA Polymerase II Promoters
Authors:  Tao Zhang, Yangbin Gao, Rongchen Wang and Yunde Zhao, date: 02/20/2017, view: 2461, Q&A: 0
CRISPR/Cas9-mediated genome editing relies on a guide RNA (gRNA) molecule to generate sequence-specific DNA cleavage, which is a prerequisite for gene editing. Here we establish a method that enables production of gRNAs from any promoters, in any ...
