I have a question about restriction enzymes and their use in helping to ID CRISPR induced mutations.  Once a CRISPR causes an indel at a target sequence, a restriction enzyme can be used to screen several individuals exposed to the CRISPR, screening them for signs of an indel.  I am not clear on a point related to this.   Do I need to choose a restriction enzyme that binds to the area where the CRISPR induces a mutation?  Or do I need to choose a restriction enzyme that cuts in the area where the CRISPR induces a mutation?

Hello es!

We believe that this post does not fit the main topic of this site.

This is a molecular biology question; even though very limited bioinformatics skills might be needed to design and analyze a Crispr experiment, this question doesn't contain anything relevant to bioinformatics.

Btw, why don't you just sequence the region by designing PCR primers and then sanger?

For this reason we have closed your question. This allows us to keep the site focused on the topics that the community can help with.

If you disagree please tell us why in a reply below, we'll be happy to talk about it.
