Abstract

Clustered interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR) with CRISPR associated 9 (Cas9) is a new bio-engineering tool originating from bacteria. It is a powerful and versatile tool to target and bind genes of interest using RNA guidance and is subsequently able to edit or regulate genes. Cas9 can be used as a machinery that induces double-stranded breaks or it can be used to regulate genes in various ways. This review covers various aspects such as basic mechanisms of CRISPR/Cas9, CRISPR/Cas9 experimental design, off-target effects caused by CRISPR/Cas9, and catalytically inactive Cas9 with its versatile functions.
