    A type III-A CRISPR-Cas system employs degradosome nucleases to ensure robust immunity

    Lucy Chou-Zheng, Asma Hatoum-Aslan
    Degradosome-associated nucleases PNPase and RNase J2 are required for type III CRISPR immunity against diverse nucleic acid invaders originating from plasmid and phage.

    Type III CRISPR-Cas systems can provide redundancy to counteract viral escape from type I systems

    Sukrit Silas et al.
    Cooperation between evolutionarily disparate CRISPR-Cas modules allows bacteria to counter mutational escape by viruses.

    Cancer-associated TERT promoter mutations abrogate telomerase silencing

    Kunitoshi Chiba et al.
    TERT promoter mutations impair TERT silencing upon cellular differentiation and are sufficient to facilitate cellular immortalization without additional tumor selected changes, explaining why they are associated with a very specific tumor spectrum.

    Trait-associated noncoding variant regions affect TBX3 regulation and cardiac conduction

    Jan Hendrik van Weerd et al.
    Multiple variant transcriptional regulatory elements in >1 megabasepairs of noncoding DNA close to TBX3 affect gene expression and atrioventricular conduction system function in vivo.

    Pooled genome-wide CRISPR screening for basal and context-specific fitness gene essentiality in Drosophila cells

    Raghuvir Viswanatha et al.
    Pooled CRISPR knockout screening in Drosophila cells enables high-resolution, genome-wide functional genomic comparisons in cell-lines across vast evolutionary distance.

    Functional metagenomics-guided discovery of potent Cas9 inhibitors in the human microbiome

    Kevin J Forsberg et al.
    A high-throughput, activity-based selection identifies many phage-derived inhibitors of Cas9 from human fecal and oral metagenomes, with at least one inhibitor acting via a novel mechanism.

    Intrinsic sequence specificity of the Cas1 integrase directs new spacer acquisition

    Clare Rollie et al.
    The acquisition of new foreign DNA by the prokaryotic adaptive immune system CRISPR-Cas is shown to depend on the fundamental sequence specificity of the Cas1 integrase.

    Exploiting CRISPR-Cas to manipulate Enterococcus faecalis populations

    Karthik Hullahalli et al.
    Conflicts between CRISPR-Cas systems and antibiotic resistance plasmids can be exploited to selectively eliminate antibiotic resistance from Enterococcus faecalis populations.

    One-step efficient generation of dual-function conditional knockout and geno-tagging alleles in zebrafish

    Wenyuan Li et al.
    Conditional gene knockout in combination with fluorescent labeling of different alleles can be achieved with high efficiency in zebrafish through NHEJ-mediated targeted insertion using a CRISPR/Cas system.
