The CRISPR/Cas system is a highly specific genome editing tool capable of distinguishing alleles differing by even a single base pair. However, current tools only design guides (sgRNAs) for a reference genome, not taking into account individual variants which may generate, remove, or modify CRISPR/Cas sgRNA sites. Here we describe ExcisionFinder, a tool for designing personalized and allele-specific sgRNAs for genome editing. We leverage >2,500 human genomes to identify optimized pairs of sgRNAs that can be used for human therapeutic editing in large populations in the future.
