The development of CRISPR-Cas technology is revolutionizing biology. Based on machinery bacteria use to target foreign DNA, these powerful techniques allow investigators to edit DNA sequences and modulate gene expression more rapidly and accurately than ever before. Featuring contributions from leading figures in the CRISPR-Cas field, this laboratory manual presents a state-of-the-art guide to the technology. It includes step-by-step protocols for applying CRISPR-Cas-based techniques in various systems, including yeast, zebrafish, Drosophila, mice, and cultured cells (e.g., human pluripotent stem cells). The contributors cover web-based tools and approaches for designing guide RNAs that precisely target genes of interest, methods for preparing and delivering CRISPR-Cas reagents into cells, and ways to screen for cells that harbor the desired genetic changes. Strategies for optimizing CRISPR-Cas in each system-especially for minimizing off-target effects-are also provided. Authors also describe other applications of the CRISPR-Cas system, including its use for regulating genome activation and repression, and discuss the development of next-generation CRISPR-Cas tools. The book is thus an essential laboratory resource for all cell, molecular, and developmental biologists, as well as biochemists, geneticists, and all who seek to expand their biotechnology toolkits.

Recent advances in imaging technology reveal, in real time and great detail, critical changes in living cells and organisms. This manual is a compendium of emerging techniques, organized into two parts: specific methods such as fluorescent labeling, and delivery and detection of labeled molecules in cells; and experimental approaches ranging from the detection of single molecules to the study of dynamic processes in organelles, organs, and whole animals. Although presented primarily as a laboratory manual, the book includes introductory and background material and could be used as a textbook in advanced courses. It also includes a DVD containing movies of living cells in action, created by investigators using the imaging techniques discussed in the book. The editors, David Spector and Robert Goldman, whose previous book was Cells: A Laboratory Manual,are highly respected investigators who have taught microscopy courses at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, the Marine Biology Laboratory at Woods Hole, and Northwestern University.

The Condensed Protocols From Molecular Cloning: A Laboratory Manualis a single–volume adaptation of the three–volume third edition of Molecular Cloning: A Laboratory Manual.This condensed book contains only the step–by–step portions of the protocols, accompanied by selected appendices from the world's best–selling manual of molecular biology techniques. Each protocol is cross–referenced to the appropriate pages in the original manual. This affordable companion volume, designed for bench use, offers individual investigators the opportunity to have their own personal collection of short protocols from the essential Molecular Cloning.

Still the only concise practical guide to laboratory experiments in proteomics, this new edition now also covers DIGE technology and liquid-chromatography, while the troubleshooting section has been considerably extended. Adopting a practical approach, the authors present the relevant techniques and explain the route to successful experimental design and optimal method selection. They cover such electrophoretic techniques as isoelectric focusing, SDS page, 2-D page, and DIGE, as well as liquid-chromatography techniques, such as ion exchange, affinity chromatography and reversed-phase HPLC. Mass-spectrometric techniques include MALDI, ESI, and FT ICR. Generously illustrated, partly in color, the book also features updates of protocols as well as animations illustrating crucial methodological steps on a companion website.

This volume presents a list of cutting-edge protocols for the study of CRISPR-Cas defense systems and their applications at the genomic, genetic, biochemical and structural levels. CRISPR: Methods and Protocols guides readers through techniques that have been developed specifically for the analysis of CRISPR-Cas and techniques adapted from standard protocols of DNA, RNA and protein biology. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Authoritative and cutting-edge, CRISPR: Methods and Protocols provides a broad list of tools and techniques to study the interdisciplinary aspects of the prokaryotic CRISPR-Cas defense systems.
