CRISPR in blowflies published

Our paper on gene editing in screwworm and blowflies has been published in G3. We describe our efforts to optimize CRISPR/Cas9-based gene editing through targeting the brown body gene, which is an ortholog of Drosophila yellow. We then use the method to knockout the screwworm transformer gene, which is essential for female development.
