Expanding the Genome Editing Toolbox with Metagenomics

Time: 11:20 am
day: Day One


  • Through metagenomics, reconstructed genomes from unknown organisms are searched to discover novel nucleases of all types
  • High throughput characterization processes enable rapid development of effective and precise gene editing tools with minimal engineering required
  • Uncovering next-generation technologies: novel CRISPR nucleases, base editors, and transposases
