Welcome to the Brouns lab


News

November 2020

Franklin publishes his paper on self targeting spacers in CRISPR systems, often considered the Achilles heel of CRISPR. Or is it? This organism survived 162 self targeting spacers against 11 prophages in the genome. Great provacative work, as Science should be.

October 2020

Patrick defends his PhD thesis at Utrecht University. Awesome job Dr de Jonge! Smiling both before and after the defense. All the best with your new position in Amsterdam.

October 2020

Jochem publishes his methods paper describing a novel analytical method to analyze the microscopy data of the movement of proteins inside cells. Amazing job!

October 2020

Big day for CRISPR as Emmanuelle and Jennifer receive the Nobel prize for Chemistry for their breakthrough Cas9 findings. Congratulations!

September 2020

Patrick publishes his high-throughput method called Adsorpseq to link unknown bacteriophages to their hosts. How simple, nice and useful can it be!

June 2020

Franklin (on the far left) is starting his own research group in Southampton. What a dream come true for him. Thank you for the amazing time and all the best in the UK.

February 2020

Sungchul and Luuk sort out how CRISPR memories are acquired and publish in Nature. What a result!

 

This animation explains the findings beautifully.

February 2020

After 3 years, Cristobal is leaving us. We wish you all the best and please stay in touch.

November 2019

Benjamin defends his PhD in style. Congrats with this well-deserved accomplishment.

November 2019

Patrick publishes his paper on BACON domains in crAssphage. Wow that was fast.

November 2019

Jochem publishes his masterpiece about cellular surveillance by Cascade!

November 2019

Amazing, after 8 years the paper is published showing Cascade can be engineered into a genome nuclease. Thanks everyone at Caribou, Peter and Sam. Also thanks to Tim, Selma, Seb, Emiel, Lieuwe for your early contributions.

June 2019

Sebastian and Cristobal publish a paper on conserved sequence motifs in type I-D CRISPR systems. Nice job and thank you reviewer 3 for taking this part out of an earlier story!
