CRISPRi Screens Reveal Sources of Metabolic Robustness in E. coli

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.

Break-induced replication (BIR) is a way to solve those problems. In humans, it is employed chiefly to repair breaks in DNA that cannot be fixed otherwise. A new study seeks to tease out BIR’s high risk-reward arrangement by describing for the first time the beginning-to-end sequence in BIR.
