The last Editorial of Nucleic Acids Research, written by the editors of this journal, Barry L. Stoddard and Keith Fox, describes CRISPR/Cas9 gene targeting system as a new revolution in the academic and commercial biotech community. The authors of the Editorial made a special online collection of over 70 articles on CRISPR biology – the studies that either continue to unravel details of the formation of CRISPR loci and their subsequent mechanisms of surveillance and action, and studies that describe the application of CRISPR for targeted gene modification and genome engineering. This collection of publications is organized here. Included in this special online issue is our paper “Repurposing the CRISPR/Cas9 system for targeted DNA methylation“.
