Loss-of-function experiments are essential for the functional investigation of cis-regulatory elements (CREs), such as transcriptional enhancers. This can be achieved with CRISPR-Cas9 using pairs of single guide RNAs (sgRNAs) to target the flanking regions of a CRE. Here, I describe a single-step protocol to rapidly and inexpensively generate vectors co-expressing two sgRNAs, which allows re-usage of gRNAs oligonucleotides from one experimental design to another. This protocol is applicable to cloning sgRNAs into virtually any CRISPR-Cas9 backbone that allows cloning by Golden Gate, by adapting the primer design.
