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...

Genome editing could be applied to correct disease-causing mutations in human embryos, but concerns about efficacy and safety are paramount. Shoukhrat Mitalipov and colleagues use CRISPRCas9 to correct a heritable cardiomyopathy mutation in human embryos. By optimizing the experimental conditions, the authors show very reduced mosaicism, and report that for this heterozygous mutation, CRISPRCas9-induced breaks seem to be preferentially repaired using the wild-type allele as a template in human e...
