DISCOVER-seq published in Science

The lab’s manuscript on DISCOVER-seq is out today in Science. DISCOVER-seq is a way to watch Cas enzymes doing their things in any cell, or even an organism. It uses recruitment of DNA repair factors to find off-targets and provides single-nucleotide resolution of Cas repair dynamics. Congrats to co-first authors Beeke Weinert and Stacia Wyman! And thanks to our wonderful collaborators in the Conklin labs and at AstraZeneca.

Want to give DISCOVER-seq a try? There is a very detailed protocol on protocols.io and code on Github.Feel free to reach out if you’re having trouble or want to collaborate.
