A Golden Gate-based Protocol for Assembly of Multiplexed gRNA Expression Arrays for CRISPR/Cas9
The CRISPR (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats)-associated protein 9 (Cas9) has become the most broadly used and powerful tool for genome editing. Many applications of CRISPR-Cas9 require the delivery of multiple small guide ...
