Webinar On Demand: CRISPR Cures 2033

Expanding the Public Health Impact of Gene Editing

CRISPR-Cas shows promise in leveraging nonclinical and manufacturing information from one disease indication to another, potentially without repeating redundant, costly, and time-consuming nonclinical studies. That’s the driving message in a webinar that featured a pioneer in human genome editing, Dr. Fyodor Urnov, Scientific Director at the Innovative Genomics Institute (IGI).

Collaboration Helps Drive Advancement

Making use of ultra-low endotoxin Cas9 from Aldevron

The latest research article from the Innovative Genomics Institute (IGI) at the University of California, Berkeley, highlights the collaboration between Aldevron with the laboratories of Nobel Laureate Dr. Jennifer Doudna and Dr. David Savage. Published in Molecular Therapy-Nucleic Acids, “Genome editing in the mouse brain with minimally immunogenic Cas9 RNPs,” shows how Aldevron generated ultra-low endotoxin Cas9 for IGI to enable a novel in vivo CRISPR delivery system, targeted directly into the brain for editing.

Eureca-Vᵀᴹ: What is it?

Meet a new catalog CRISPR protein

If you were at the Advanced Therapies Week in Miami from January 17-20, you learned first-hand about our newest catalog CRISPR protein, Eureca-V™ Nuclease. But what exactly is Eureca-V? In short, the core technology for Eureca-V is the proprietary MAD7® nuclease developed by Inscripta®. Aldevron and Inscripta have partnered to make this protein broadly available to the therapeutic, diagnostic, and agricultural research markets.

The Power of Small

Whitepaper showcases next-generation plasmid technology

NanoplasmidTM. We’ve been discussing this topic quite a bit recently, and now our latest whitepaper brings you an in-depth examination of our novel Next-Generation plasmid technology. The etiology of its name, “nano,” originates from its purposefully designed “small” backbone of around 500 base pairs (bp) as compared to traditional plasmids that often exceed 2000 bp. This reduced backbone size is a direct result of removing prokaryotic and antibiotic-resistance genes used to select transformed bacteria and propagate a vector.
