I report here a detailed protocol for seamless genome editing using the piggyBac transposon in human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs). Recent advances in custom endonucleases have enabled us to routinely perform genome editing in hPSCs. Conventional approaches use the Cre/loxP system that leaves behind residual sequences in the targeted genome. I used the piggyBac transposon to seamlessly remove a drug selection cassette and demonstrated safe genetic correction of a mutation causing α-1… 
Precise and efficient scarless genome editing in stem cells using CORRECT
TLDR
This protocol outlines in detail how to implement either the re-Guide or re-Cas variants of CORRECT to generate scarlessly edited isogenic stem cell lines with intended monoallelic and biallelic sequence changes in ∼3 months.
Guidelines for Fluorescent Guided Biallelic HDR Targeting Selection With PiggyBac System Removal for Gene Editing
TLDR
A step-wise protocol for biallelic gene editing that uses two donors carrying a combination of fluorescent reporters alongside homology arms directed to the same genomic region for bIALlelic targeting and results in the integration of only the desired modifications.

TLDR
An optimized stepwise protocol to deliver CRISPR/Cas9 plasmids in human iPS cells with a great efficiency and can be used to obtain knock-out cell line from healthy iPS cell line by the NHEJ pathway and reproduce disease phenotype.
Non-viral reprogramming of fibroblasts into induced pluripotent stem cells by Sleeping Beauty and piggyBac transposons.
TLDR
SB and PB transposons represent a promising non-viral approach for iPS cell derivation, albeit with reduced reprogramming efficiencies, and the transposon-derived iPS cells featured typical hallmarks of pluripotency, including teratoma growth in immunodeficient mice.
At the Conflux of Human Genome Engineering and Induced Pluripotency
TLDR
An overview of state-of-the-art nuclease technologies such as ZFN, TALEN, and CRISPR/Cas9 and their utility for genome engineering of human iPSCs is provided and how nucleases may be used to edit the genome with base-pair precision is explored.
Co-incident insertion enables high efficiency genome engineering in mouse embryonic stem cells
TLDR
The efficiency of isolating precise HDR-mediated events in mouse embryonic stem (ES) cells is increased by more than 20-fold through the use of co-incidental insertion (COIN) of independent donor DNA sequences.
