This Week in Cell

A Massachusetts Institute of Technology-led team catalog essential genes in more than a dozen human acute myeloid leukemia (AML) cell lines. With the help of genome-wide CRISPR-based screening, the researchers tallied gene essentiality in 14 AML lines, defining essential genes, genes that were required only in the lines with mutant Ras oncogene activity, and genes with overlapping biological functions that could not be inactivated at the same time.
