Title: CARDS: CRISPR Arrayed Repeat Detection System / Part II. UMMS16-41; Patent Pending. 

  • This invention provides a means to resolve the 3-D genome in live cells by disclosing a novel CRISPR-based system in which as many as six different genomic loci can be labeling, each in a distinctive color, in live cells. This technology, called "CRISPRainbow" is far more expansive that fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) conducted on fixed cells. The invention further discloses methods to track by real-time fluorescence microscopy the assembly dynamics and target residence lifetimes of CRISPR machinery in live cells.
