    Enhanced homology-directed human genome engineering by controlled timing of CRISPR/Cas9 delivery

    Steven Lin et al.
    Building on previous work (Jinek et al., 2013), we report a simple and robust system to achieve high fidelity and high efficiency (30% of homologous recombination) genome engineering by homology-directed repair pathway in human cells using cell cycle synchronization and timed delivery of Cas9 ribonucleoprotein complexes.
