Phage engineering

CRISPR-Cas9 based phage engineering

This project is a permanent endeavour that has accompanied us since the beginning of our research. It has gone through various phases and led to the development of diverse tools like the programme CutSPR and diverse vectors of which pRH030 is the most relevant.

Status: This project is usually realised within the framework of student work, such as Bachelor and Master Thesis. If you are interested, please contact us.
