Easy, practical, and affordable gene silencing techniques are constantly progressing, and genetic tools such as TALEs, RNAi, and CRISPR/Cas9 have emerged as new techniques for understanding the basic biology and virulence mechanisms of pathogenic organisms, including bacteria. Here, we describe one-step targeted gene silencing in Leptospira biflexa by using plasmids expressing catalytically inactive Streptococcus pyogenes Cas9 (dCas9) and a single-guide RNA (sgRNA) capable of pairing to the coding strand of a desired gene.
