Rapid engineering of cell models with CRISPR-Cas9 technology
Tech Talk presented at ASCB 2015 Cell Biology Meeting on Monday, Dec. 14th
CRISPR-Cas9 systems provide a platform for high efficiency genome editing that can lead to innovative applications in cell engineering. However, the delivery of Cas9 and synthesis of guide RNA (gRNA) remains two steps that limit overall efficiency and general ease of use. In this presentation we will discuss the rate limiting steps in current CRISPR-Cas9 workflows and introduce streamlined methods to reduce the editing workflow timeline to just 4 days. Additionally, we will discuss our recently launched GeneArt Engineered Cell Models collection which can provide instant access to human cell lines containing Knockout and Knock-in mutations. This resource along with the streamlined workflows allow the researcher to the rapidly test their hypotheses and accelerate their research programs.
