Cornell Researcher Improves Efficiency of CRISPR/Cas9


An intern in the 2015 Plant Genome Research Program (PGRP) at Cornell University is helping advance innovative plant bioinformatics research.

Jonathan Gomes Selman has created a computer program to improve the efficiency of a genome editing technique called CRISPR/Cas9, and has designed multiple guide sequences for a gene family that plays an important role in plant immune responses called the Receptor Like Cytoplasmic Kinase (RLCK) family.
