The ability to interrogate gene function in Plasmodium parasites has been greatly enhanced by the advent of CRISPR/Cas9 systems. The breadth of genome manipulations ranges from single point mutations to large multigene deletions, however many of the technical considerations for designing CRISPR-based experiments are common to any editing approach. This review will discuss protocols for vector construction and donor design for genome editing P. falciparum, including pitfalls, variables, and validation methods.
