Getting started with CRISPR: a review of gene knockout and homology-directed repair

CRISPR has become an increasingly popular tool for genome editing, in part because it is highly flexible and relatively easy to implement compared to other technologies. However, for scientists beginning to work with this method, the wide range of products and variety of editing approaches can be overwhelming. In this webinar, Justin Barr provides a simple explanation of the steps for planning your experiment, including guide RNA design, an overview of delivery methods, and options for measuring editing results. He also discusses how to generate specific mutations in the genome using homology-directed repair (HDR).
