Abstract

Selectable markers are widely adopted in transgenesis and genome editing for selecting engineered cells with desired genotype but are limited in choices. We present here split selectable markers each allowing for selection of multiple unlinked transgenes in the context of lentivirus-mediated transgenesis as well as CRISPR/Cas-mediated biallelic knock-ins. Future development of split selectable markers may support enrichment or selection of hyper-engineered cells containing tens of transgenes or genetic modifications.

CRISPR (general)

Clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR) are DNA sequences in the genome that are recognized and cleaved by CRISPR-associated proteins (Cas). CRISPR-Cas system enables the editing of genes to create or correct mutations. Discover the latest research on CRISPR here.

CRISPR for Genome Editing

Genome editing technologies enable the editing of genes to create or correct mutations. Clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR) are DNA sequences in the genome that are recognized and cleaved by CRISPR-associated proteins (Cas). Here is the latest research on the use of CRISPR-Cas system in gene editing.
