Knock-in therapy, in which an insertion site can be controlled, would be more suitable for the treatment of genetic blood disorders as compared to conventional gene therapy with lentivirus vectors that introduce genes into the genome randomly. Recent advancements in genome editing technology have substantially improved the knock-in efficiency, making it a reality. We present the details of a virus-free CRISPR/Cas9-based genome editing method for bona fide mouse hematopoietic stem cells.
