Now drug-resistant genes can be identified in less than half the time
Researcher Emily Crawford of Chan Zuckerberg Biohub and UC San Francisco has created a gene-based technology — FLASH — that addresses this problem.
FLASH uses CRISPR/Cas9’s precise gene-targeting ability, plus a couple of classic molecular biology tricks to build a platform to amplify and sequence specific DNA molecules of pathogens with antimicrobial resistant genes.
