Innovations in molecular biology are allowing neuroscientists to study the brain with unprecedented resolution, from the level of single molecules to integrated gene circuits. Chief among these innovations is the CRISPR-Cas genome editing technology, which has the precision and scalability to tackle the complexity of the brain. This Colloque Médecine et Recherche has brought together experts from around the world that are applying genome editing to address important challenges in neuroscience, including basic biology in model organisms that has the power to reveal systems-level insight into how the nervous system develops and functions as well as research focused on understanding and treating human neurological disorders
From microbial immunity to genome editing( Visual )

(CIT): NIH Director's Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series The microbial CRISPR-Cas adaptive immune systems provide archaea and bacteria with a programmable defense against invading nucleic acids. Several years ago, Dr. Zhang and others reported that the effector module from Streptococcus pyogenes CRISPR-Cas9 (SpCas9) could be harnessed for genome editing. Following this work, Zhang's lab has discovered, characterized, and engineered additional Cas enyzmes for use as molecular biology tools. These include a novel class of CRISPR-Cas systems that use RNA-guided RNases, such as Cas13a (C2c2) and Cas13b. Leveraging the natural properties of Cas13a, the lab developed a single-molecule nucleic acid sensing platform termed SHERLOCK, which can be used for rapid pathogen detection and genotyping. Zhang is continuing to explore microbial diversity to identify novel enzymes and systems that could serve as the basis for the development of additional molecular biology tools and applying these tools to tackle complex biological questions
