Discovery and Development of the CRISPR/Cas System



A CRISPR/Cas Timeline

The Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats/CRISPR-associated protein systems (CRISPR/Cas) are bacterial and archaeal adaptive immunity systems, capable of protecting cells from invading nucleic acids. of these, the CRISPR/Cas9 system is used for genome editing, as the Cas9 protein targets and binds specific DNA sequences. 

Here we explore the timeline of discovery and development of the CRISPR/Cas system, from the identification of a distinct repetitive sequence to the use of CRISPR/Cas9 for gene editing and beyond.
