Depositor Comments


These six EGFP-targeting lentiCRISPRs have EGFP-targeting sgRNAs cloned into the lentiCRISPR backbone plasmid (Addgene plasmid 49535) and are used in Fig 1B of Shalem*, Sanjana* et al (2014). If you want to clone your own targeting sequences, please use the lentiCRISPR backbone plasmid (Addgene plasmid 49535), as the sgRNA Type IIs cloning site is not present in these plasmids.

Special note from the Zhang lab: We are constantly improving our CRISPR reagents. Please check for the most up-to-date information.
