CRISPR genome editing

Use of the CRISPR (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats) and associated Cas9 enzyme for genome editing has been a major technological breakthrough, making genome modification in cells or organisms faster, more efficient, and more robust than previous genome editing methods. The Alt-R® CRISPR-Cas9 System is an optimized genome editing solution that outperforms other CRISPR approaches for producing on-target, double-stranded DNA breaks.

We have also developed an alternative Alt-R CRISPR-Cas12a (Cpf1) System to open up CRISPR editing to additional areas in genomes.

The Alt-R CRISPR Systems were developed through comprehensive research of each component of the CRISPR-driven, double-stranded break generation that is critical for gene disruption and DNA insertion by homologous recombination.
