The Trinh Lab at the University of Tennessee is interested in developing bioinformatics tools related to the versatile CRISPR-Cas system. We are an interdisciplinary team of undergraduate computer scientists and chemical engineering graduate students. Our flagship tool CASPER (CRISPR Associated Software for Pathway Engineering and Research) can be used for various applications ranging from target design for gene modulation to selective targeting in microbial ecosystems. It can be found on our Github page.
In order to contact the team for inquiries related to software improvements or areas of collaboration, please use the contact information provided at the bottom of the page.
