CRISPR technologies have been widely embraced for both basic and applied research. This space has rapidly moved forward since the first demonstration of Cas9-mediated genome editing with the discovery of new nucleases, the development of diverse and novel CRISPR applications for genome editing, gene regulation, in vitro applications, and the use of CRISPR technologies in diverse organisms, including, prokarynotes, plants, and animals.
