    In this review we describe the application of CRISPR tools for functional genomics screens in bacteria, with a focus on the use of interference (CRISPRi) approaches. We review recent developments in CRISPRi titration, which has enabled essential gene functional screens, and genome-scale pooled CRISPRi screens. We summarize progress toward enabling CRISPRi screens in non-model and pathogenic bacteria, including the development of new dCas9 variants. Taking into account the current state of the field, we provide a forward-looking analysis of CRISPRi strategies for determining gene function in bacteria. Copyright © 2020.
