crispRdesignR: Guide Sequence Design for CRISPR/Cas9

Designs guide sequences for CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing and provides information on sequence features pertinent to guide efficiency. Sequence features include annotated off-target predictions in a user-selected genome and a predicted efficiency score based on the model described in Doench et al. (2016) <doi:10.1038/nbt.3437>. Users are able to import additional genomes and genome annotation files to use when searching and annotating off-target hits. All guide sequences and off-target data can be generated through the 'R' console with sgRNA_Design() or through 'crispRdesignR's' user interface with crispRdesignRUI(). CRISPR (Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats) and the associated protein Cas9 refer to a technique used in genome editing.
