CRISPR Spacers - Narrower
Concept UI M0579707
Scope note Short pieces of unique sequence in between CLUSTERED REGULARLY INTERSPACED SHORT PALINDROMIC REPEATS. These spacers, which are homologous to previously invading viruses, are generated from invading viral DNA and are inserted in between the repeats.
