Are you crazy for CRISPR-Cas9? Are you gaga for in vivo gene editing? You should probably get out more, but in the meantime we have just the study for you. A new Nature Biotechnology study from the lab of Jennifer A Doudna has described a major step toward the in vivo application of CRISPR-Cas9-mediated gene […]
Keeping up with the rapidly evolving technology landscape for epigenetics and non-coding RNA research can be daunting. Learn more about the available methods out there and stay on top of the latest developments in our Technology section.
For those living in the more Northern climes, this is just about the time when you would give nearly anything for a sunny pool party. When it comes to pool parties, CRISPR turns out to be a pretty good host, but with one important caveat – CRISPR pool parties tend to be life-or-death affairs. Pooled […]
Gamma rays can give super powers to scientific insight, whether it be PET scans, the Epigenetic Hulk, or nucleosome-nucleosome interactions. While we’ve seen a lot about the primary structure of single nucleosomes and the tertiary structure of large chromatin loops, it seems that the 1–3 nucleosome (50–500 bp) architecture known as secondary structure has been […]
After playing hide-and-seq with chromatin for a while, we’re sure you’ve been begging for a new plan of attack to help you see what’s going on. Thankfully, a Northern California collaboration led by the lab of Howard Chang alongside the labs of William Greenleaf, Jan Liphardt, and Jennifer Doudna has brought forth a tactic to […]
Here at EpiGenie we like to think of ourselves as reporters of genomic methylation, but two new studies from the lab of Rudolf Jaenisch at MIT give us a run for our money and demonstrate the utility of their reporter of genomic methylation (RGM). Using RGM, the talented group brings forth a deeper understanding of […]
