In Nature this week, a University of Washington team reports on the use of saturation genome editing to evaluate the function of nearly 4,000 single-nucleotide variants (SNVs) across 13 exons that are critical to the function of the tumor-suppressor gene BRCA, and measure subsequent cell survival in haploid human cells. They identify more than 400 non-functional missense SNVs, as well as roughly 300 SNVs that disrupt expression.
