CRISPR Google Forum

The lab hosts a Google forum where scientists from instittuions across the world can find answers to their questions about CRISPR usage in laboratory settings. Questions posted on the site are viewed and answered by members of the Zhang lab.

Genome Engineering Worshop

The lab hosts an annual genome engineering workshop in Cambridge, Massachusetts with the aim to help scientists learn about how to use the latest CRISPR technologies.

TAL Effector Genome Engineering Toolbox

TAL effectors (TALEs) are programmable DNA binding proteins that can be easily customized to target novel DNA sequences. TALEs can be used to facilitate precise genome editing and to control transcription of endogenous genes. The genome-engineering.org website contains detailed protocol and reagent information on the open source TALE genome engineering toolbox developed by our group.

Optogenetics Tools

Optogenetics tools combine genetic control with fast light switching to achieve targeted modulation of specific groups of neurons in live animals. Detailed reagent information and protocols can be found at the optogenetics.org website.
