General Information
This record was deprecated on Sept. 10, 2020 for the following reason(s): Deprecated after correspondence with Christine Pourcel (maintainer)

CRISPRdb acts as a gateway to a publicly accessible database and software. It enables the easy detection of CRISPR sequences in locally-produced data and the consultation of CRISPR sequence data present in the database. It also gives information on the presence of CRISPR-associated (cas) genes when they have been annotated as such.
