Which Cas9 nuclease is right for your CRISPR experiment?

In recent years distinct variants have been developed based on the originally adapted nuclease Streptococcus pyogenes Cas9. In a recent issue of Nature Biotechnology, Kim et al. have analyzed the sequence-specific cleavage activity of several Cas9 variants and developed an online prediction tool to help you find the right Cas9 for your experiment.
