FEMS author services experts

Author services are services like proofreading, scientific editing, and visual support. They can be important when you are preparing your manuscript, poster, or grant proposal. Recently, FEMS partnered with Peerwith. This unique partnership allows contributors to FEMS Journals to help each other out in author services. In case you are looking for these services, we recommend working with the experts below. Click on their profile picture to get in touch with them, or alternatively place a service request here.

Dr Corrado Nai

I’m active as freelance scientific writer, editor and communicator, e.g. as blogger for FEMS (the Federation of European Microbiological Societies) or scientific speaker (science slams). Some of my writings and scientific contributions appeared on the Journal of Biological Chemistry, Fungal Genetics and Biology, Fungal Biology and Biotechnology, Science and the Oxford University Press blog. As a fully proficient, yet non-native English speaker I understand your struggles with the language and I am happy to help.

A protocol for multiple genetic modifications in S. cerevisiae using CRISPR/Cas9

Two methods are described for efficient genetic modification of Saccharomyces cerevisiae using CRISPR/Cas9. The first method enables the modification of a single genetic locus using in vivo assembly of a guide RNA (gRNA) expression plasmid without the need for prior cloning. A second method using in vitro assembled plasmids that could contain up to two gRNAs was used to simultaneously introduce up to six genetic modifications (e.g. six gene deletions) in a single transformation step by transforming up to three gRNA expression plasmids simultaneously. The method is not only suitable for gene deletion but is also applicable for in vivo site-directed mutagenesis and integration of multiple DNA fragments in a single locus.
