CRISPR/Cas is an adaptive immune system of bacteria and archaea. The 2020 Nobel Prize in Chemistry has been awarded to Emmanuelle Charpentier and Jennifer Doudna for their discovery that CRISPR/Cas9 can be used as genetic scissors. CeBiTec researchers have published on identifying CRISPR sequences in bactrerial genomes, CRISPR-based genome editing and gene repression by CRISPRi. A plethora of CRISPR technologies are currently developed at high speed and they will revolutionize research in fields such as "Metabolic Engineering of Unicellular Systems and Bioproduction".
