April 25 – May | Genome wide CRISPR Screens

  • Liscovitch-Brauer, N., et al. (2021) Profiling the genetic determinants of chromatin accessibility with scalable single-cell CRISPR screens. Nat. Biotechnol. https://doi.org/10.1038/s41587-021-00902-x
  • In this study the authors combine CRISPR technology to inactivate 105 chromatin-related genes with transposon activity to document chromatin accessibility in 30,000 single cells.
  • Zou, X., et al. (2021) A systematic CRISPR screen defines mutational mechanisms underpinning signatures caused by replication errors and endogenous DNA damage. Nat. Cancer  https://doi.org/10.1038/s43018-021-00200-0
  • In human induced pluripotent stem cells, 43 genes involved in the DNA Damage Response were inactivated to reveal potential mutational signatures related to malignant transformation by whole-genome sequencing of 173 sub clones.
