Researchers develop new method to revamp and minimize yeast genome

Schematic illustration of the SCRaMbLE-based genome compaction (SGC) method. Credit: SIAT Researchers from the Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology (SIAT) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences developed a method termed SCRaMbLE-based genome compaction (SGC) to revamp and minimize the yeast genome. They showed that a synthetic chromosome arm (synXIIL) could be efficiently reduced by this […]
