TransOmic transEdit-dual CRISPR Combinatorial Gene Knockout Kit

TransOmic is offering a new vector for its transEdit-dual CRISPR system, enabling combinatorial gene knockout to identify functional relationships between genes. The p-Clip-dual vector system can now express two single guide RNAs (sgRNAs) targeting separate genes. The new product builds on the firm's transEdit-dual CRISPR arrayed screening library, which targets 19,000 human genes with vectors expressing two sgRNAs targeting the same gene.
