    Casposase structure and the mechanistic link between DNA transposition and spacer acquisition by CRISPR-Cas

    Alison B Hickman et al.
    The tetrameric structure of a casposase bound to DNA and its biochemical properties show how a transposase could have evolved to perform CRISPR-Cas spacer acquisition.
