    • Broad Specificity Profiling of TALENs Results in Engineered Nucleases With Improved DNA Cleavage Specificity 

      Guilinger, John P.; Pattanayak, Vikram; Reyon, Deepak; Tsai, Shengdar Q.; Sander, Jeffry D.; Joung, J. Keith; Liu, David R. (2014)
      Although transcription activator-like effector nucleases (TALENs) can be designed to cleave chosen DNA sequences, TALENs have been shown to have activity against related off-target sequences. To better understand TALEN ...
    • Continuous directed evolution of DNA-binding proteins to improve TALEN specificity 

      Hubbard, Basil P.; Badran, Ahmed H.; Zuris, John A.; Guilinger, John P.; Davis, Kevin M.; Chen, Liwei; Tsai, Shengdar Q.; Sander, Jeffry D.; Joung, J. Keith; Liu, David R. (2015)
      Nucleases containing programmable DNA-binding domains can alter the genomes of model organisms and have the potential to become human therapeutics. Here we present DNA-binding phage-assisted continuous evolution (DB-PACE) ...
    • Dimeric CRISPR RNA-guided FokI nucleases for highly specific genome editing 

      Tsai, Shengdar Q.; Wyvekens, Nicolas; Khayter, Cyd; Foden, Jennifer A.; Thapar, Vishal; Reyon, Deepak; Goodwin, Mathew J.; Aryee, Martin J.; Joung, J. Keith (2014)
      Monomeric CRISPR-Cas9 nucleases are widely used for targeted genome editing but can induce unwanted off-target mutations with high frequencies. Here we describe dimeric RNA-guided FokI Nucleases (RFNs) that recognize ...
    • Efficient In Vivo Genome Editing Using RNA-Guided Nucleases 

      Hwang, Woong Y.; Fu, Yanfang; Reyon, Deepak; Maeder, Morgan L.; Tsai, Shengdar Q.; Sander, Jeffry D.; Peterson, Randall T.; Yeh, J.-R. Joanna; Joung, J. Keith (2013)
      Clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR)/CRISPR-associated (Cas) systems have evolved in bacteria and archaea as a defense mechanism to silence foreign nucleic acids of viruses and plasmids. Recent ...
    • Engineered CRISPR-Cas9 nucleases with altered PAM specificities 

      Kleinstiver, Benjamin P.; Prew, Michelle S.; Tsai, Shengdar Q.; Topkar, Ved; Nguyen, Nhu T.; Zheng, Zongli; Gonzales, Andrew P.W.; Li, Zhuyun; Peterson, Randall T.; Yeh, Jing-Ruey Joanna; Aryee, Martin J.; Joung, J. Keith (2015)
      Although CRISPR-Cas9 nucleases are widely used for genome editing1, 2, the range of sequences that Cas9 can recognize is constrained by the need for a specific protospacer adjacent motif (PAM)3–6. As a result, it can often ...
    • Genome-wide specificities of CRISPR-Cas Cpf1 nucleases in human cells 

      Kleinstiver, Benjamin P.; Tsai, Shengdar Q.; Prew, Michelle S.; Nguyen, Nhu T.; Welch, Moira M.; Lopez, Jose M.; McCaw, Zachary R.; Aryee, Martin J.; Joung, J. Keith (2016)
      The activities and genome-wide specificities of CRISPR-Cas Cpf1 nucleases1 are not well defined. We show that two Cpf1 nucleases from Acidaminococcus sp. BV3L6 and Lachnospiraceae bacterium ND2006 (AsCpf1 and LbCpf1, ...
    • GUIDE-Seq enables genome-wide profiling of off-target cleavage by CRISPR-Cas nucleases 

      Tsai, Shengdar Q.; Zheng, Zongli; Nguyen, Nhu T.; Liebers, Matthew; Topkar, Ved V.; Thapar, Vishal; Wyvekens, Nicolas; Khayter, Cyd; Iafrate, A. John; Le, Long P.; Aryee, Martin J.; Joung, J. Keith (2014)
      CRISPR RNA-guided nucleases (RGNs) are widely used genome-editing reagents, but methods to delineate their genome-wide off-target cleavage activities have been lacking. Here we describe an approach for global detection of ...
    • High-fidelity CRISPR-Cas9 variants with undetectable genome-wide off-targets 

      Kleinstiver, Benjamin P.; Pattanayak, Vikram; Prew, Michelle S.; Tsai, Shengdar Q.; Nguyen, Nhu; Zheng, Zongli; Joung, J. Keith (2015)
      CRISPR-Cas9 nucleases are widely used for genome editing but can induce unwanted off-target mutations. Existing strategies for reducing genome-wide off-targets of the broadly used Streptococcus pyogenes Cas9 (SpCas9) are ...
    • Highly Efficient Generation of Heritable Zebrafish Gene Mutations Using Homo- and Heterodimeric TALENs 

      Cade, Lindsay; Reyon, Deepak; Hwang, Woong Y.; Tsai, Shengdar; Patel, Samir; Khayter, Cyd; Joung, Jae Keith; Sander, Jeffry D; Peterson, Randall Theodore; Yeh, Jing-Ruey Joanna (Oxford University Press, 2012)
      Transcription activator-like effector nucleases (TALENs) are powerful new research tools that enable targeted gene disruption in a wide variety of model organisms. Recent work has shown that TALENs can induce mutations in ...
