Company to offer first CRISPR-based custom genome editing service for yeast strains
Piscataway, New Jersey, February 22, 2016 (Newswire.com) - GenScript, the number one global provider of gene synthesis services, today announced it will unveil its custom gene editing services for the yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, at the 2016 CRISPR Precision Gene Editing Congress. With this expansion of its CRISPR portfolio, GenScript becomes the only company to offer CRISPR services for yeast.
GenScript’s CRISPR Services Product Manager, Laura Geuss Ph.D., is scheduled to present details of the new service on Tuesday, February 23rd at 12:15 PM ET at the Hyatt Regency Boston. GenScript is an official 2016 CRISPR Congress sponsor.
"GenScript’s CRISPR services for yeast were developed to help researchers harness the power of yeast genome editing in the most efficient and effective ways possible. We are excited to discuss the applications of our CRISPR services with leading researchers in this quickly evolving, important field,” said Dr. Geuss. “Since S. cerevisiae is such a widely-used model organism, our CRISPR services are poised to help advance research on the utilization of yeast for the production of biofuels and chemicals, the study of human disease, and the development of novel therapeutics.”
Named the 2015 Breakthrough of the Year by the journal Science, the genome-editing technology CRISPR has impacted nearly every area of genetic research. The technology makes possible the editing of genomes with unprecedented precision, efficiency, and flexibility.
As one of the leading players in the genome editing market, GenScript began developing and offering CRISPR products and services for researchers in June 2013. In addition to its yeast gene editing services, the company’s portfolio of CRISPR-based services and products includes a gRNA design tool, gRNA constructs, genome-scale gRNA libraries, bacterial genome editing powered by a novel λ Red-CRISPR/Cas9 system, and mammalian cell-line editing services.
