CRISPRi Screens Reveal Sources of Metabolic Robustness in E. coli

News   Nov 25, 2020 | Original story from the Max Planck Institute for terrestrial Microbiology

 
CRISPRi Screens Reveal Sources of Metabolic Robustness in <i>E. coli</i>

CRISPR interference uses a deactivated Cas9 protein (dCas9) and a single guide RNA (sgRNA) and enables specific knockdowns of enzymes in the metabolic network of bacteria. Deep sequencing can track growth of 7177 CRISPRi in parallel and informs about robustness of each CRISPRi strain. Credit: Max Planck Institute for terrestrial Microbiology/Link.

Early Breeding Reduced Harmful Mutations in Sorghum

News

When humans first domesticated maize some 9,000 years ago, those early breeding efforts led to an increase in harmful mutations to the crop's genome compared to their wild relatives, which more recent modern breeding has helped to correct. A new comparative study investigates whether the same patterns found in maize occurred in sorghum, a gluten-free grain grown for both livestock and human consumption.
