Unconstrained genome targeting with near-PAMless engineered CRISPR-Cas9 variants https://science.sciencemag.org/content/368/6488/290.full Manipulation of DNA by CRISPR-Cas enzymes requires the recognition of a protospacer-adjacent motif (PAM), limiting target site recognition to a subset of sequences. To remove this constraint, we engineered variants of Streptococcus pyogenes Cas9 (SpCas9) to eliminate the NGG PAM requirement. We developed a variant named SpG that is capable of targeting an expanded set of NGN PAMs, and we further
