We CRISPR for You
With our alternative genome editing tools, we bring your projects to success rapidly and cost-efficiently
We enable your genome editing projects
Customers benefit from the use of our genome editing nucleases in contracted development projects. In addition, they can obtain access to our technology via licensing for their own genome editing projects. Our technology can be applied in the following areas:
- Industrial Biotech
We currently are consolidating our genome editing activities under the brand Akribion Genomics.
What can genome editing do?
Genome editing using CRISPR-Cas (Cas9, Cas12 or others) has revolutionized a slow process in nature: that of natural selection, i.e. the successful reproduction of those organisms that are best adapted to their environmental conditions. With CRISPR-Cas technology, not only can the selection process be accelerated enormously; above all, the process becomes targeted and precise. Molecular biologists can use it to selectively insert, remove or modify individual DNA segments in living organisms.
Chronological development and type of targeted genome modifications: Targeted genome modifications can be achieved using rare cleaving nucleases, such as zinc-finger nucleases (ZFNs), transcription activator-like effector nucleases (TALENs), meganucleases (mns, also termed homing endonucleases); MegaTals as fusions of meganucleases and Talens; and clustered, regularly interspaced, short palindromic repeat (CRISPR) RNA-guided nucleases.
