Abstract:
The understanding of the genetic mechanism of Staphylococcus aureus requires efficient tools, however, genetic manipulation in S. aureus is always laborious and time-consuming. Here we proposed a novel CRISPR/dCas9 interference method for the rapid knockdown of target genes. Furthermore, multiple genes can be repressed simultaneously by using this method.
