Check out Kelly Rae Chi's article in The Scientist about new #CRISPR innovations.

This new article in The Scientist discusses these 4 new CRISPR innovations, two of which I've also blogged about before  (but check out the article for more comments from the authors…)

(1) using SCR7 to promote homology-directed repair (HDR) in mouse embryos

(2) engineering cells to contain an inducible Cas9 gene; 

(3) improved methods for directly delivering Cas9 protein into cells; and 

(4) more thorough off-target identification using COSMID.   

All interesting and worth reading about!
