Headline: Programme: DFG – Priority Programme “Much more than Defence: the Multiple Functions and Facets of CRISPR-Cas“ (SPP 2141)
Dienstag, 11. Juli 2017…”One of the most exciting breakthroughs in biology in the past decade has been the discovery of the CRISPR-Cas system. […]
At this time, we have barely begun to understand the full biological potential of this system. Thus far, the new CRISPR-Cas functions have primarily been discovered fortuitously and systematic approaches to detect roles beyond immunity are lacking.
The two major goals of this concerted Priority Programme are:The identification and investigation of new CRISPR-Cas functions beyond viral defence using model representatives of archaea and bacteria.The elucidation of the molecular mechanisms underlying these novel functions using state-of-the-art methods.The cooperation of researchers from different disciplines, such as microbiology, genetics, medical microbiology, biochemistry, biophysics, bioinformatics, ecology, structural biology, molecular dynamics, single-molecule localisation microscopy and single-molecule biochemistry, will provide the framework for a successful programme.”…
