Recordbreaking gene edit disables 13200 LINE1 Transposons in a single cell

first_img © 2019 Science X Network Explore further An international team of researchers has succeeded in making 13,200 edits to a single cell—and the cell survived. In their paper uploaded to the bioRxiv preprint server, the team describes the edits they made, how they did it and why. Credit: CC0 Public Domain Distorted, stretched DNA may increase risk of off-target changes with CRISPR-Cas9 Citation: Record-breaking gene edit disables 13,200 LINE-1 Transposons in a single cell (2019, March 27) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2019-03-record-breaking-gene-disables-line-transposons.html The CRISPR gene editing technique has made headlines around the world over the past several years as researchers have used it to edit genes in a variety of ways. More recently, researchers have attempted to make multiple edits to the same cell. Up until now, the record was 62 edits as part of an effort to remove remnants of retrovirus genes in a pig genome.The researchers explain that the reason they are working to perfect the multiple edit technique is to give them a way to remove LINE-1 transposons, also known as “jumping genes.” LINE-1 transposons are snippets of DNA that can move from one part of a genome to another, hence the nickname. Prior work has suggested that they are not necessary, and in fact, can lead to problems such as genetic diseases. Prior work has also shown that they make up approximately 17 percent of the human genome. That means that each cell has a lot of them, but getting rid of them one at a time would be a difficult challenge, to say the least. Because of that, the researchers with this new effort sought to get rid of them all in one fell swoop.The team notes that they first tried the regular CRISPR editing technique, but found that it resulted in a lot of collateral damage typically ending in cell death. The group then switched to using a version of CRISPR that has been modified into what has been described as a base editor—a gene editor that does not cut the DNA strand, but instead makes in-place letter swaps. Because it did not cut anything, the approach allowed the team to edit thousands of genes without killing the cell. The researchers note that the 13,200 edits they made represented just half of the LINE-1 transposons in the cell they were working on, but plan to continue working until they find a way to remove them all.

China sentences 8 to death for attacks in Xinjiang

first_imgThe Urumqi Intermediate People’s Court in the capital of Xinjiang also handed out suspended death sentences to five others, China Central Television said, without mentioning when the trials were held. In a separate case, the same court jailed seven minority students of a prominent Uighur scholar for three to eight years after convicting them of separatism, rights lawyer Li Fangping said Monday. Violence linked to Xinjiang has killed about 400 people in and outside the region over the past 20 months. Beijing has blamed the attacks on radical separatists with foreign ties, although critics and human rights advocates say Uighurs have chafed under the repressive rule of the Han Chinese-dominated government. Also Read – Pro-Govt supporters rally as Hong Kong’s divisions deepenUighurs also complain of economic disenfranchisement with the inflow of Han Chinese to their homeland. Beijing says it is pumping investments into the region to help it grow. Most attacks have been mounted against state targets, such as police stations, military checkpoints and government buildings, but assailants also have struck at civilians in several recent incidents, slashing at crowds with knives or setting off bombs at train stations and commercial areas.last_img read more

After RHEL 8 release users awaiting the release of CentOS 8

first_imgThe release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 (RHEL 8) this week, has made everyone waiting for CentOS 8 rebuild to occur. The release of CentOS 8 will require major overhaul in the installer, packages, packaging, and build systems so that it can work with the newer OS. CentOS 7 was released last year, days after RHEL 7 was released. So far the team at CentOS have made their new build system setup ready, and are currently working on the artwork. But they still need to work on their multiple series of build loops in order to get all of the CentOS 8.0 packages built in a compatible fashion. There will be a an installer update followed by a release candidate(s). Only after all these releases, CentOS 8 will finally be available for it’s users. The RHEL 8 release has made many users excited for the CentOS 8 build. A user on Reddit commented, “Thank you to the project maintainers; while RedHat does release the source code anyone who’s actually compiled from source knows that it’s never push-button easy” Another user added, “Thank you Red Hat! You guys are amazing. The entire world has benefited from your work. I’ve been a happy Fedora user for many years, and I deeply appreciate how you’ve made my life better. Thank you for building an amazing set of distros, and thank you for pushing forward many of the huge projects that improve our lives such as Gnome and many more. Thank you for your commitment to open source and for living your values. You are heroes to me” So far, a release date has not been declared for CentOS 8 , but a rough timeline has been shared.
