Transcription activator-like effector nucleases (TALENs) can induce frame shift-mediated gene disruption through DNA double-strand breaks, but assays evaluating TALEN activity at endogenous genomic loci remain limited. Here, we provide an online tool for TALEN design and for primer design of a versatile modified lacZ assay to detect frameshifts in short fragments of the genomic DNA.
