High reagent costs associated with molecular biology assays are driving trends toward continued volume reduction and parallelization of assays. Several robotic pipettors are available for small-volume, multi-well pipetting, but suffer from some disadvantages. We present two projects to address some of the drawbacks.
We utilized paired synthetic crRNAs coupled with our synthetic tracrRNA in cells transduced with lentiviral Cas9 to perform a functional knockout on hsa-miR-221. This three-part system (crRNA, tracrRNA and Cas9) has demonstrated efficient gene editing when used with only one guide RNA, but the goal was to use two crRNAs to remove the entire stem-loop.READ MORE
