In a paper published today in Nature Communications, we demonstrate a new approach to the chemical synthesis of libraries of sgRNAs for CRISPR applications. Using the method, standard or chemically modified CRISPR sgRNA libraries can be prepared in a single tube by click ligation of an invariant Cas9-binding 79-mer and a library of variable genome-targeting 20-mers.
