Investigating essential gene function in Mycobacterium tuberculosis using an efficient CRISPR interference system


Despite many methodological advances that have facilitated investigation of Mycobacterium tuberculosis pathogenesis, analysis of essential gene function in this slow-growing pathogen remains difficult. Here, we describe an optimized CRISPR-based method to inhibit expression of essential genes based on the inducible expression of an enzymatically inactive… (More)
