In bacteria and archaea CRISPR- Cas systems provide sequence based adaptive immunity against mobile genetic elements such as phages and plasmids (1). Cas9 is a multidomain nuclease from the bacterium Streptococcus pyogenes characteristic of type II CRISPR- Cas systems (2). Using single-guide RNA (sgRNA), Cas9 is targeted to specific genomic loci where it generates a blunt ended double strand break (3). Cas9 can be used for genetic engineering experiments such as genome editing and generating transgenic models (4).
