Red/ET recombination system is a classical method of microbial gene editing, which can achieve the knockin, knockout, point mutation and other modifications of the target gene. This technology has been widely used in genetic modification of genomic DNA, such as bacterial artificial chromosome(BAC), Escherichia coli chromosome. However, the efficiency of this system still needs to be improved.
How to improve the efficiency of gene recombination and editing has always been a hotspot of microbial gene editing
. Therefore, CRISPR/Cas9 technology is adopted to improve the efficiency of microbial gene editing
CRISPR/Cas9 is an acquired immune system in bacteria and archaea and can be used to fight against invading viruses and exogenous DNA. In recent years, the CRISPR/Cas9 gene-editing technology has been widely used because it is simple and efficient. It has been the most advanced method for gene editing.
Ubigene developed CRISPR-B™ which optimizes the microbial gene-editing vectors and process. The efficiency and accuracy are much higher than traditional methods. CRISPR-B™ can be used in gene editing of bacteria and fungi.
