    Genomic Edition of Ashbya gossypii Using One-vector CRISPR/Cas9
    Authors:  Gloria Muñoz-Fernández, Alberto Jiménez and José Luis Revuelta, date: 06/20/2020, view: 1407, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] The CRISPR/Cas9 system is a novel genetic tool which allows the precise manipulation of virtually any genomic sequence. In this protocol, we use a specific CRISPR/Cas9 system for the manipulation of Ashbya gossypii. The filamentous fungus A. gossypii is currently used for the industrial production of riboflavin (vitamina B2). In ...
    CRISPR-Cas9 Genome Editing of Plasmodium knowlesi
    Authors:  Franziska Mohring, Melissa N. Hart, Avnish Patel, David A. Baker and Robert W. Moon, date: 02/20/2020, view: 2641, Q&A: 1
    [Abstract] Plasmodium knowlesi is a zoonotic malaria parasite in Southeast Asia that can cause severe and fatal malaria in humans. The main hosts are Macaques, but modern diagnostic tools reveal increasing numbers of human infections. After P. falciparum, P. knowlesi is the only other malaria parasite capable of being maintained in ...
    Unbiased and Tailored CRISPR/Cas gRNA Libraries by Synthesizing Covalently-closed-circular (3Cs) DNA
    Authors:  Martin Wegner, Koraljka Husnjak and Manuel Kaulich, date: 01/05/2020, view: 4092, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Simplicity, efficiency and versatility of the CRISPR/Cas system greatly contributed to its rapid use in a broad range of fields. Applications of unbiased CRISPR/Cas screenings are increasing and thus there is a growing need for unbiased and tailored CRISPR/Cas gRNA libraries. Conventional methods for gRNA library generation apply PCR and cloning ...
    Single and Multiplexed Gene Editing in Ustilago maydis Using CRISPR-Cas9
    [Abstract] The smut fungus Ustilago maydis is an established model organism for elucidating how biotrophic pathogens colonize plants and how gene families contribute to virulence. Here we describe a step by step protocol for the generation of CRISPR plasmids for single and multiplexed gene editing in U. maydis. Furthermore, we describe the ...
