Mission Bio Tapestri Designer Extended Applications

Mission Bio has released extended capabilities for its Tapestri Designer automated, cloud-based tool for designing targeted single-cell DNA custom panels. The tool now includes applications for mouse genomes and CRISPR editing, reducing design time for custom panels from weeks to just minutes to help accelerate cell and gene therapy, the company said. 

With the new CRISPR applications, researchers can measure zygosity, co-occurrence of multiple edits including on- and off-target events, and rare cell populations, providing the information necessary to optimize editing systems and use them safely. As part of the mouse genome compatibility feature, mouse single-cell custom DNA panels are now available. Mission Bio also said its design experts are on hand to support customers with unique and novel custom panel needs for single-cell DNA or multi-omics panels.
