Here we propose to use bacterial cells as factories that generate EVs harboring both the RNP complex (or any other CRISPR‐mediated tool) and a specific ligand molecule. The ligand would allow specific binding of EVs to cells with the matching receptors, adding a level of specificity to the delivery, hence stimulating precise genome editing.
