Harness the Power of
Genome Editing Technologies (View Abstract)

Recent progress in the field of Genome Editing has opened new applications and allowed researchers to generate new animal models to study gene function and diseases. Genome Editing has traditionally been hampered poor efficacy and labor-intensive procedures. Electroporation based solution significantly mitigate this challenge. On top of that, it has been cited (Chen S et al 2016) as a simple and economical strategy especially for in vivo genome editing.

Another major challenge to Genome Editing is that isolating rare recombinant iPS cell clones is difficult without antibiotic selection. To help solve this problem, Dr. Yuichiro Miyaoka and his team has developed a method (Miyaoka et al 2014) that allows efficient clone selection.
