June 2014
The latest paper from our lab has been published in Nucleic Acids Research: CHOPCHOP: a CRISPR/Cas9 and TALEN web tool for genome editing.
 A rate-limiting step in efficiently applying TALEN and CRISPR/Cas9 methods is the selection and design of targeting constructs. The developed online tool, CHOPCHOP  expedites the design process.
Congratulations to the first author, graduate student Tessa Montague!
