Abstract

Parasitic nematodes are biomedically and economically important, but many are genetically intractable which limits our understanding of their molecular and cellular biology. Gang et al. report CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing in parasites of the genus Strongyloides, generating both knock-outs and knock-ins, and demonstrated heritability of the modifications, a crucial advance in the field.
