“(The) Cas-CLOVER hybrid gene editing system fuses a functionally inactive Cas9 to the site-specific nuclease, Clo51. Cas-CLOVER is targeted using a set of two distinct gRNAs, operating like CRISPR-Cas9, but (the) system has the exquisite specificity of type IIS nucleases and causes no or very few off-target mutations. We can use this high-fidelity system to safely develop off-the-shelf CAR T-cell products.”
