Hi Manel I really like the idea. Probably In cell lines it will be possible, not quite sure in primary cells as they do not really well tolerate plasmid DNA, maybe mini-circles may come handy to this regard. Also would be interesting to see how it works for the Cas9 as protein while the gRNA is a plasmid. I do not know if there are any studies where they tried to do it. Cause I imagine the Cas9 protein being slowly degradated while the gRNA plasmid is still being transcribed. But if you can make it this will also open a new avenue about mtDNA off-target assays!
