Congratulations to Jennifer Doudna!

A huge congratulations to the team of Doudna and Charpentier who received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry this year for the development of a new method of genome editing, namely, the much used CRISPR system. Dounda did much of her early structural work on this system using several of the ALS-ENABLE beamlines (though at the time these beamlines were not banded together under the ALS-ENABLE umbrella). We are very proud! Here is a link to a list of publications resulting from work at our beamlines.
