Abstract CRISPR/Cas-induced genome editing is a powerful tool for genetic engineering, however, targeting constraints limit which loci are editable with this method. Since the length of a DNA sequence impacts the likelihood it overlaps a unique target site, precision editing of small genomic features with CRISPR/Cas remains an obstacle. We introduce a two-step genome editing strategy that virtually eliminates CRISPR/Cas targeting constraints and facilitates precision genome editing of elements…

A Markerless CRISPR-Mediated System for Genome Editing in Candida auris Reveals a Conserved Role for Cas5 in the Caspofungin Response
A markerless genome editing system for C. auris that relies on CRISPR/Cas9 technology and works to modify the genomes of all known C.auris clades and discovered a conserved role for Cas5 in the caspofungin response between C. albicans and C. Auris.


Precise genome-wide base editing by the CRISPR Nickase system in yeast
A genome-wide base editing technology, “CRISPR Nickase system” that utilizes a single Cas9 nickase that was free from the limitation of editable bases that was observed in the CRISPR/Cas9 system, and was able to precisely edit bases up to 53 bp from the nicking site.
A Novel and Efficient Method for Bacteria Genome Editing Employing both CRISPR/Cas9 and an Antibiotic Resistance Cassette
By integrating the optimized two-plasmid CRISPR/Cas system and donor DNA, the method is PAM-independent and can be used to edit any genomic loci, and it is hoped this method can also be used for efficient genome editing in other organisms.
