Find predicted CRISPR sites using Ensembl

The CRISPR/Cas9 system has revolutionised scientific research over the last few years, offering an efficient method of genome editing. CRISPR/Cas9 utilises the cellular machinery used by bacteria to recognise and edit the DNA of invading viruses. It is formed of two key components: Continue reading Find predicted CRISPR sites using Ensembl
