Caribou Biosciences is a leading biotechnology company in genome engineering. We develop technology-based solutions for cellular engineering and analysis based on the CRISPR-Cas9 technology platform. Cas9, when paired with a guide RNA, cuts double-stranded DNA allowing for specific changes to DNA. These site-specific DNA modifications can be utilized to carry out sophisticated gene knock-outs or knock-ins.
Caribou's technologies mark a revolutionary development that allows scientists to engineer nearly any part of any genome with extreme flexibility. Forbes Magazine has called Cas9 the protein that "could change biotech forever" and the New York Times has noted that "the pace of new discoveries and applications is dizzying." Caribou's tools and technologies provide transformative capabilities to basic and applied biological research, therapeutic development, agricultural biotechnology, and industrial biotechnology.
