New tools allow rapid ID of CRISPR-Cas system PAMs

CRISPR-Cas systems are widely heralded as a new generation of genetic tools. But development of these tools requires researchers to identify the protospacer-adjacent motifs that unlock each system's functionality. A new set of techniques expedites PAM identification -- and early testing finds that many CRISPR-Cas systems actually have multiple PAMs of varying strength.
