Planning to work with aptamers?

We are often asked whether IDT manufactures aptamers. The answer is, yes! IDT does synthesize aptamers and aptamer libraries, and there are already 100s of published research papers describing the successful use of such sequences manufactured by IDT. Learn about aptamers, SELEX, and how IDT can assist you with reagents for your aptamer applications.

CRISPR guide RNA format affects genome editing outcomes

Learn how the use of different formats for CRISPR guide RNAs can lead to different genome editing outcomes. The optimized, short RNA oligos that make up the crRNA and tracrRNA components of the Alt-R™ CRISPR-Cas9 System outperform other CRISPR guide RNA formats. In addition to their improved editing efficiency, these short RNA oligos are unable to incorporate into the target genome, avoiding a common problem associated with DNA constructs, to provide cleaner editing results.
