Here, the application of CRISPR interference (CRISPRi) for specific gene silencing in Leptospira species is described. Leptospira cells are transformed by conjugation with plasmids expressing dCas9 (catalytically "dead" Cas9) and a single-guide RNA (sgRNA), responsible for base pairing to the desired genomic target. Methods to validate gene silencing are presented.
