CRISPR–Cas9 genome editing is used to induce a DNA repair response and correct a disease-causing heterozygous mutation in human embryos with reduced mosaicism and preferential repair using the wild-type copy of the gene.
We present an intuitive strategy for predicting the effect of sequence variation on splicing. In contrast to transcriptional elements, splicing elements appear to be strongly position dependent. We demonstrated that exonic binding of the normally intronic splicing factor, U2AF65, inhibits splicing. Reasoning that the positional distribution of a splicing element is a signature of its function, we developed a method for organizing all possible sequence motifs into clusters based on the genomic pr...
