Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) have become widely used for disease modelling, particularly with regardto predisposing genetic risk factors and causal gene variants. Alongside this, technologies such as the CRISPR/Cassystem have been adapted to enable programmable gene editing in human cells. When combined, CRISPR/Casgene editing of donor-specific iPSC to generate isogenic cell lines that differ only at specific gene variants providesa powerful model with which to investigate genetic variants associated with diseases affecting many organs,including the brain and eye. Here we describe our optimized protocol for using CRISPR/Casribonucleoproteins to edit disease causing gene variants in human iPSCs. We discuss design of crRNAs andhomology-directed repair templates, assembly of CRISPR/Cas ribonucleoproteins, optimization of delivery vianucleofection, and strategies for single cell cloning, efficient clone cryopreservation and genotyping for identifyingiPSC clones for further characterization.
