Ittiprasert and colleagues identified genomic safe harbour (GSH) sites in Schistosoma mansoni using computational methods and inserted a transgene into one of the sites through clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR)/Cas9-assisted homology-directed repair. This study outlines a promising strategy for functional genomics to study this parasite that causes a debilitating and neglected tropical disease.
