Abstract: The development of CRISPR-based technology has revolutionized genome engineering, enabling efficient modification of various microorganisms with limited to no scars. As iterations of CRISPR-mediated genetic engineering can be time-consuming, Multiplexed CRISPR allows for targeting multiple genes at once by expressing different gene-specific gRNA. This technique has proven to be effective in multiplex gene disruption, gene integration, as well as CRISPR interference and activation.

In this talk, we’ll overview the concept of Multiplexed CRISPR, strategies available and its applications.
