The CRISPR-Cas9 system has recently been widely adopted in genome editing due to its simplicity [1-3]. Nuclease-deficient mutant dCas9 protein can be fused to effector domains and the fusion proteins can be guided by sgRNAs to genomic sites to regulate gene expression or label chromosomes [4-10]. However, only one type of effector is applied in most(More)
A 47 kb genomic island (GEI) bracketed by 50 bp direct repeats, containing 52 annotated genes, was found to delete spontaneously from the genome of Desulfovibrio vulgaris Hildenborough. The island contains genes for site-specific recombinases and transposases, rubredoxin:oxygen oxidoreductase-1 (Roo1) and hybrid cluster protein-1 (Hcp1), which promote(More)
