Reprogramming of the Genome: Applications of CRISPR-Cas in Non-mammalian Systems, represents the collation of chapters written by eminent scientists worldwide. CRISPR-Cas9 system is an RNA-mediated immune system of bacteria and archaea that protects from bacteriophage infections. It is one of the revolutionized technologies to uplift biology to the next stages. It is a simple, rapid, precise, and cost-effective tool for genome editing and regulation of a wide range of organisms. It has gained scientific and public attention worldwide. This volume covers several lower and model organisms that have been used for genome editing for creating a model for understanding of the molecular mechanism, disease model, removal of bacteria, virus, fungi, protozoans, insects, among others. This book is a key source of information available in a single volume. This book will be useful for not only beginners in genome engineering, but also students, researchers, scientists, policymakers, and stakeholders interested in harnessing the potential of reprogramming of the genomes in several areas.

Key Features

  • Offers basic understanding and a clear picture of genome editing CRISPR-Cas systems in different organisms
  • Explains how to create an animal model for disease diagnosis/research and reprogram CRISPR for removal of virus, bacteria, fungi, protozoan and many more
  • Discusses the advances, patents, applications, challenges and opportunities in CRISPR-Cas9 systems in basic sciences, biomedicine, virology, bacteriology, molecular biology and many more


Beginner in the area of genome engineering area, but also researchers, students, scientists, clinicians, stakeholders, policy makers and practitioners and many more
