DISCOVERing Off-Target Effects for Safer Genome Editing

Innovative Genomics Institute

The CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing system cuts DNA at exactly where scientists specify, but sometimes it cuts at “off-target” sites too. In an upcoming Science paper, researchers reveal DISCOVER-Seq, an unbiased method that uses a DNA repair protein to identify all Cas9 cut sites. This approach gives genome editors a clearer picture of how safe their nascent CRISPR therapies really are.
