CRISPR Research Resources

The Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeat (CRISPR)-Cas9 genome editing system has been widely used for editing genome sequence from various organisms including human/animal, plant and microorganism. This study provides a comprehensive and informative platform package on how to use the CRISPR-Cas9 system for genome editing. We first briefly introduced the editing system and then described how to make a CRISPR-Cas construct for particular purposes including how to select backbone vectors, where to obtain these vectors, and how to choose corresponding promoters and so on. Subsequently, we introduced how to design single guide RNA for high efficient genome editing. Finally we briefly discuss how to reduce off-target effects. We have provided many useful website addresses and tools for the CRISPR-Cas9 systerm. All these resources have been packed and are available in the following links:
