Chromoproteins: Colorful Proteins For Molecular Biology Experiments

Posted by Jennifer Tsang on Feb 4, 2020 9:15:00 AM

The ocean is full of striking visuals from fluorescent jellyfish, bioluminescent phytoplankton, and colorful corals, to name a few. What’s behind these sights are an abundance of biological molecules like chromoproteins, fluorescent proteins, and luminescent proteins. While fluorescent proteins and luminescence have been widely used in biological research for a long time, chromoproteins are just now being developed for a broad range of biological inquiries.

Farewell 2019, and hello 2020! As we're gearing up to start a new decade, we’re also looking back at the last year of scientific discovery. We’ve documented many new tools on the Addgene blog and have created and updated guides on various topics in biology over the past year: CRISPR, optogenetics, chemogenetics, plasmids, fluorescent proteins, careers, and more. These resources can now be found in one place: the Educational Resources page.

What's New in CRISPR - December 2019

Posted by Jennifer Tsang on Dec 17, 2019 9:37:19 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 (such as these recent blog posts on prime editing, IgnaviCas9, and Nanoblades), but we hope that this blog series will help you find more new CRISPR tools for your research!

This time:

  • CRISPRi in Burkholderia
  • Base editors
  • CRISPR toolkit for epitope tagging
  • Lentiviral capsid-based Cas9/gRNA ribonucleoprotein delivery
  • Cytosine deaminase for RNA editing
