Functional and Evolutionary Understanding of the Interaction between Microbial CRISPR-Cas Immunity and Viral Anti-CRISPR Proteins

Xu Peng says: “The objective of the project is to study how microorganisms use the CRISPR-Cas immune system for protection against virus infection and how viruses use their anti-CRISPR proteins (Acrs) to inhibit the CRISPR-Cas immune system. The outcome will be deeper understanding of the CRISPR-Acr interaction that will facilitate the future development of better CRISPR- and Acr-based tools for treating human genetic and infectious diseases.”
