What's New in CRISPR - September 2019

Posted by Jennifer Tsang on Sep 10, 2019 8:56:17 AM

In this quarterly blog series, we’ll highlight a few of the new CRISPR plasmids available at Addgene. We will still periodically focus on specific CRISPR plasmid tools more in-depth, but we hope that this blog series will help you find new CRISPR tools for your research!

This time:

  • GeneWeld vectors to create knock-ins
  • CasX
  • Drug inducible CRISPR/Cas9 activation
  • Ecoli genome-wide inhibition library
  • CRISPR knockout libraries for cancer research

The Golden Stopwatch Award: Recognizing Facilitators of Research

Posted by Randall Carter on Sep 5, 2019 9:06:00 AM

Picture this: you’re a busy scientist anxiously awaiting the arrival of the newest plasmid you requested from Addgene...the plasmid that will help you run that last additional experiment requested by Reviewer #3. But why isn’t the plasmid here yet? A quick look at your order status on identifies the hold-up. Your Material Transfer Agreement is stuck in “pending.” Fear not, there are many ways we’re trying to make MTA turnaround faster with technology transfer offices (TTOs). The latest of these efforts is the Golden Stopwatch Award to celebrate exemplary TTOs.
