Horizon Discovery Single Cell RNAseq-Linked CRISPR Screening Service

Horizon Discovery has added single cell RNAseq-linked pooled CRISPR screening to its CRISPR screening services portfolio. Coupling pooled CRISPR screening to single cell RNAseq allows the impact of CRISPR-based gene modification to be examined on a global transcriptomic scale at single cell resolution. The platform offers high-quality screening data and biological insight to address gaps in target identification and validation by integrating the effect of gene editing with complex gene expression mapping, the company said.
