Construction of Viral Vectors for Cell Type-specific CRISPR Gene Editing in the Adult Mouse Brain
Authors:  Hiroshi Yamaguchi and Luis de Lecea, date: 08/20/2019, view: 4306, Q&A: 0
Recently developed gene editing technologies based on engineered CRISPR/Cas9 systems enables researchers to disrupt genes in a cell type-specific manner in the adult mouse brain. Using these technologies, we recently showed that the dopamine ...
