IGI researchers increase CRISPR-Cas9 efficiency

IGI Researchers have discovered a way to increase the efficiency with which CRISPR-Cas9 technology cuts and disables genes in cells.  In culture, “knockout” cell lines allow researchers to better understand the role of genetic information, and may eventually improve therapies for human genetic diseases.
