Developmental barcoding of whole mouse via homing CRISPR

In vivo barcoding using nuclease-induced mutations is a powerful approach for recording biological information, including developmental lineages; however, its application in mammalian systems has been limited. We present in vivo barcoding in the mouse with multiple homing guide RNAs that each generate hundreds of mutant alleles and combine for an exponential diversity of barcodes. Activation upon conception and continued mutagenesis through gestation result in developmentally barcoded mice wh…
