Increasingly efficient production of human pluripotent stem cells

Reliable production of high-quality iPS cells enables their increasingly efficient utilization in biomedical applications. Credit: Ras Trokovic, University of Helsinki Researchers at the University of Helsinki have developed a new, faster and more reliable technique for reverting human cells to the stem cell state. Pluripotent stem cells are a key…

New biosensors shine a light on CRISPR gene editing — ScienceDaily

Detecting the activity of CRISPR gene editing tools in organisms with the naked eye and an ultraviolet flashlight is now possible using technology developed at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Scientists demonstrated these real-time detection tools in plants and anticipate their use in animals, bacteria and fungi…

New Techniques and Complex Models

CRISPR systems that rely on inactivated Cas enzymes—that is, dead Cas (dCas) enzymes—never looked more alive. They harness the targeting power associated with CRISPR—but not the double-strand cuts. As such, they give researchers new ways to interrogate and manipulate gene function. Possibilities include CRISPR interference (CRISPRi) and CRISPR activation (CRISPRa)…
