Easi-CRISPR Recipe Outlined in Nature Protocols (NE UCEDD/LEND)

By Elizabeth Kumru

Earlier this year, Dr. Gurumurthy, associate professor of developmental neuroscience at UNMC's Munroe-Meyer Institute, announced his breakthrough in genome engineering with his up to 100 percent accurate way to genetically alter a mouse. The method is called Easi (Efficient additions with ssDNA inserts)-CRISPR. The highly efficient knock-in and gene replacement method uses long single-stranded DNA donors in mice to genetically custom engineer animal models. Scientists can now create these much-needed animal models at previously unheard of rates rapidly and at significantly lower cost.
