Cellecta Single-Module CRISPR Human Genome-Wide 80K Knockout Library

Cellecta has launched the single-module CRISPR Human Genome-Wide 80K Knockout library. The new library includes 4 guide RNAs per gene and is half the size of the company's current three-module CRISPR 150K Human Genome-Wide Knockout Library. The reduced library size enables researcher to study how cells respond to the disruption of each gene across the entire human genome in a single screening experiment. This aids the researchers ability to identify genetic elements that are functionally important in biological responses and identify new therapeutic targets.
