The University of California, Berkeley is a public research university in Berkeley, California. Established in 1868 as the state's first land-grant university, it was the first campus of the University of California system and a founding member of the Association of American Universities.
New Gene-Editing Technology Capable of Altering Several Thousand Genes at Once to Determine Their Impacts 🧬🔬✂️
The new technique, called CiBER-seq, can rapidly determine all the DNA sequences in the genome that regulate the expression of a specific gene. Based on CRISPR genome editing, the new technology developed by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley links targeted, genome-wide genetic changes with a deep-sequencing readout that quantitatively measures the expression phenotype induced by each edit.
