    • Memories are made of this : investigating the CRISPR-Cas adaption mechanism 

      Rollie, Clare (University of St Andrews, 2017-06-21) - Thesis
      CRISPR-Cas is an adaptive immune system unique to prokaryotes, which prevents infection by foreign genetic elements. Key to the function of CRISPR-Cas immunity is the ability to adapt to new threats in incorporating short ...
    • Structure of the CRISPR Interference complex CSM reveals key similarities with Cascade 

      Rouillon, Christophe; Zhou, Min; Zhang, Jing; Argyris, Politis; Beilsten-Edmands, Victoria; Cannone, Guiseppe; Graham, Shirley; Robinson, Carol; Spagnolo, Laura; White, Malcolm F (2013-10-10) - Journal article
      The Clustered Regularly Interspaced Palindromic Repeats (CRISPR) system is an adaptive immune system in prokaryotes. Interference complexes encoded by CRISPR-associated (cas) genes utilize small RNAs for homology-directed ...
