As genome-wide CRISPR screening is now widely accessible to researchers on Campus, three UW-Madison experts share their experiences with CRISPR screens, how it revolutionized scientific discovery, and what researchers who are considering incorporating the technology should know.
Dr. Peter Muir explains why some dog breeds are more vulnerable to disease and how this knowledge can improve human medicine.
Postdoc Moriah Katt explains how material science influenced her research on the brain.
