Synthego aims to simplify CRISPR editing for genetic researchers

On stage at TechCrunch Disrupt today, Synthego co-founder and CEO Paul Dabrowski noted that 80 percent of people looking into CRISPR today are newcomers to genetic engineering, so there’s clearly a need for a tool that simplifies the entire CRISPR design process. You can also use Synthego’s online tool for validating CRISPR designs from other services, as well as to share your designs with colleagues. Synthego’s toolkit isn’t something typical consumers would use, but it could lead to more CRISPR solutions down the line.
