CRISPR-Cas systems comprise a CRISPR-associated (Cas) effector polypeptide and a guide nucleic acid. Such CRISPR-Cas systems can bind to and modify a targeted nucleic acid. The programmable nature of these CRISPR-Cas effector systems has facilitated their use as a versatile technology for use in, e.g., gene editing.
UC Berkeley researchers have discovered new CRISPR-Cas effector Cas12L/Cas Lambda/Casλ polypeptides and methods of modifying a target nucleic acid using a Cas12L/Cas Lambda polypeptide.
