Dr Burgio was born in France and completed his education at Paris. He graduated from the Faculty of Medicine Xavier Bichat in Paris in 2002 with a Medical Doctor Degree. He completed his PhD in 2008 from Pasteur Institute in France and migrated to Australia for his postdoctoral training at the Menzies Research Institute (University of Tasmania) and the Australian School of Advanced Medicine (Macquarie University, Sydney). In 2015 he was appointed as a group leader at the John Curtin of Medical Research and the head of the transgenesis core facility at the Australian National University in Australia to establish a new research program using CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing technologies.

How to Test the Efficiency of your sgRNA

To successfully edit your genome of interest, one critical step is to test the sgRNA you have designed. Fortunately there are programs that have been developed such as CRISPRscan for zebrafish, SSC, Sequence Scan for CRISPR, or WU-CRISPR that you can use to predict the efficiency and the suitability of the sgRNA. However, the prediction…

Get Started in Genome Editing with CRISPR

The development of CRISPR/Cas9 technology has made it relatively straightforward to selectively edit genomes and has revolutionized the way in which we approach biological questions. CRISPR stands for Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats and in simple terms, this technique allows you to direct a nuclease to cut at a specific site in the genome of interest. The…
