As seen on Xenbase!
CRISPr/Cas (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats-assiciated) technologies can be employed to induce targeted genetic mutation. In back-to-back articles published in genesis, Blitz et al. and Nakayama et al. each report CRISPr/Cas targeted transgenesis of Xenopus tropicalis pigmentation and eye development genes.

genesis Award Winners 2013
Congratulations to the winners of this year’s ICDB poster sessions!
Brenda Araceli López Falcon Piza, hailing from UNAM-Cuernavaca, Mexico, from the Mario Zurita lab, won one of two of this year’s Latin American Society for Developmental Biology (LASDB) genesis awards for her outstanding poster “The ATRX gene is separated in Drosophila: description of the xnp2 gene.”
Mario Sánchez, from Universidad de Chile studying in the Miguel Allende lab, also received the LASDB genesis award for his impressive poster “Schwann cells negatively regulate lateral line neuromast regeneration in zebrafish.”
This year’s SDB genesis award went to Hye Ji Cha of the Edward Marcotta lab from the University of Texas at Austin, TX, USA, for his illuminating poster “Evolutionarily repurposed networks reveal the well-known antifungal drug Ttiabendazole to be a novel vascular disrupting agent and it acts through Microtubule-associated Proteins.”
