sgRNA Pool for Streptococcus pneumoniae
(Pooled Library #170432)
This concise CRISPR pooled library contains only 1,499 sgRNAs to target the whole genome of S. pneumoniae D39V with one sgRNA per operon or gene. The sgRNA pool also covers core operons of other pneumococcal strains:
- R6 (estimated 90.3% coverage of annotated genetic elements)
- TIGR4 (72.2% coverage)
- Hungary 19A-6 (66.6% coverage)
- Taiwan 19F-14 (71.6% coverage)
- 11A (66.8% coverage)
- G54 (72.1% coverage)
This library can be transformed into S. pneumoniae with inducible dCas9 to make an inducible CRISPR inhibition library.

This library is delivered as suspended DNA in a microcentrifuge tube on blue ice. The tube's contents will not necessarily be frozen. For best results, minimize freeze-thaws.
The depositing lab developed crispery to analyze the NGS data: Crispery was developed in Python to streamline the initial sequencing data analyses in a single step. It automatically and easily performs read quality filtering and sgRNA alignment for the input fastq.gz files. The program returns a CSV file with all absolute sgRNA read counts per condition for downstream analysis.
Crispery is available as a compiled executable file requiring no Python installation, and can be run as a standalone program in MS Windows, macOS and Linux (Ubuntu). In addition, it is available as a PyPI module ( https://pypi.org/project/crispery/). All versions are available for download at Zenodo (https://zenodo.org/record/5226819). The original Python 3 code, user instructions, and test data are available on GitHub ( https://github.com/veeninglab/Crispery).
