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.

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:

  • CRISPR toolkit for epitope tagging
  • Lentiviral capsid-based Cas9/gRNA ribonucleoprotein delivery
  • Cytosine deaminase for RNA editing

For the past 10+ years, Addgenies have formed teams, chosen a theme for the costume, and did their best to claim the costume contest trophy. We’ve had teams dressed up as plasmids, Blugene, and the Addgene ping pong table.
