Tips to Make the Most of a Scientific Conference

Posted by Jennifer Tsang on May 23, 2019 8:26:09 AM

So you’ve done the research, gathered up your data into an exciting story, and are ready to present your findings at a conference. But what you get out of a conference depends on what you put into it before, during, and after the meeting. Let’s break it down into the following: the elevator pitch, talks, the poster session, networking, and social media.

It’s CRISPR Week at Addgene!

Posted by Jennifer Tsang on May 13, 2019 8:01:45 AM

In 2012, we received the first CRISPR plasmid deposit. Now we have over 8,000 CRISPR plasmids in the repository that have been shared over 140,000 times to over 75 countries. That’s a lot of CRISPR! As we’ve shared these tools over the years, the amount of CRISPR educational resources hosted on our website and blog have grown. We even have a CRISPR eBook. This week, we’ll continue to grow the ways we share science by hosting our first ever CRISPR Week on social media.

Bright Monomeric Fluorescent Proteins: mNeonGreen, mTFP1, and mWasabi

Posted by Jennifer Tsang on Apr 25, 2019 11:01:12 AM

We are excited about our new partnership with Allele Biotechnology which allows researchers to deposit plasmids containing the fluorescent protein mNeonGreen. This fluorescent protein joins mTFP1 and mWasabi, as fluorophores from Allele Biotechnology that now can be deposited at Addgene. What makes these fluorescent proteins unique and what can they be used for? Let’s take a look!

Visualizing Genomic Loci with CRISPR-Sirius

Posted by Jennifer Tsang on Apr 18, 2019 8:53:21 AM

The catalytically dead Cas9 protein (dCas9) is well known for its ability to bind DNA targets without changing them. Thus, it has been widely adapted for CRISPR activation and inhibition experiments. But over the past few years, dCas9 has become a robust visualization tool to study the spatial and temporal arrangement of chromosomes and how these arrangements may affect nuclear processes. The latest of these visualization tools is CRISPR-Sirius, the brightest CRISPR-based tool to date for visualizing genomic loci in living cells.
