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.

Air Purifiers in Confined Spaces May Actually Increase the Spread of Airborne Viruses

News

The positions of air inlets and outlets in confined spaces, such as elevators, greatly affect airborne virus transmission. Researchers have shown that air purifiers may actually increase the spread. They use ultraviolet radiation to kill viruses and other microbes, but they also circulate air, sucking it in and exhausting cleaned air. This adds to overall circulation.
