CRISPR Cas9 genome editing allows researchers to modify genesin a multitude of ways including to obtain deletions, epitope-tagged loci, and knock-in mutations. Within six years of its initial application, CRISPR Cas9 genome editing has become widely employed, but disadvantages to this method, such as low modification efficiencies and off-target effects,need careful consideration. Obtaining custom donor vectors can also be expensive and time consuming. This chapter details strategies to overcome barriers to CRISPR Cas9 genome editing as well as recent developments in employing this technique.
