Tools and resources to support TALEN and CRISPR applications

Genome editing has emerged as one of humanity’s most powerful technologies in the pursuit of a greater understanding of human health and disease. Less expensive and relatively easy to design, the next generation of gene editing tools is now allowing researchers to target almost any gene for modification in a highly specific and reliable way. ​​

In this educational web hub, you will find a variety of tools and resources to fully support your understanding of gene editing techniques and methods. Learn all you need to know in order to overcome existing hurdles and design successful gene editing experiments, whether for TALEN or CRISPR applications.

Explore free downloads, watch how-to tutorials, gain insights from expert interviews and scientific articles, watch gene editing videos and webinars—and more.
