Using the CRISPR–Cas9 system, scientists can do much more than gene editing—they can boost gene transcription or use fluorescent proteins to paint and track a chromosome. In this Nature Video animation, several innovative uses for CRISPR are outlined and explained.
The CRISPR-Cas9 system has fundamentally changed the way scientists can edit genes. From turning gene expression on and off to fluorescently tagging of particular sequences, this animation explores some of the exciting possibilities of CRISPR.
