Coriell Institute

The cell lines were edited with CRISPR/Cas9 to create fusions of GFP with the proteins of interest, allowing researchers to image structures in real time.

The new grant provides Coriell with funding for five years to maintain the repository of cell lines, DNA, and genotype and sequence data.

The medical research institute is licensing the technology in order to develop future versions of it, and add new functions and services.

Researchers now have access to 300 pluripotent stem cell lines to study disease.

The award will support a collection of biosamples used in aging research and housed at the institute.

The grant from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences will support a biobank with cell lines and DNA samples representing 890 diseases.
