Featured article: Class 2 CRISPR/Cas: an expanding biotechnology toolbox for and beyond genome editing

In this review, the authors discuss the myriad genome editing tools that use CRISPR/Cas9.  They elaborate on the definition, classification, structures of CRISPR/Cas Class 2 systems; advance our understanding of new molecular mechanisms and recent progress in their applications, especially beyond genome-editing applications; provide the insights on the specificity, efficiency and versatility of each tool; and elaborate the enhancement on specificity and efficiency of the CRISPR/Cas toolbox.
