CRISPR-Cas9 Technology Cuts Clutter from Sequencing Libraries

In a new article from Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News (GEN), Gail Dutton speaks with Yaron Hakak, Jumpcode Genomics CEO, on how our CRISPRclean® technology can cut the clutter from sequencing libraries.

Much of the information generated by next-generation sequencing is biologically uninformative, but this information keeps filling NGS libraries anyway, creating background noise and masking the signals that truly matter. To remove the noise, we’ve developed a technology called CRISPRclean that harnesses the specificity of CRISPR-Cas9 to remove unwanted sequences from NGS libraries. CRISPRclean helps scientists focus their minds—and budgets—on sequences that might otherwise remain unnoticed.
