Objective
Our overall goal is to develop a platform for efficient multiplexed genome editing in livestock species. Our specific objectives are:1. To optimize CRISPR-Cas9 delivery and genome editing reagents for efficient gene disruption, allele introgression, and targeted gene insertion, in bovine, ovine and caprine ESCs.2. To optimize conditions for multiplexed gene editing in cattle ESCs.
