Part of text written by Magdalena Lindén for “CMM news”:
The project “STUDIES OF NEUTROPHILS IN AUTOIMMUNE JOINT INFLAMMATION” was generously funded 2021-2024!
I’m delighted to share the work led by Yunbing Shen, with help from especially Long Jiang and Vaishnavi Iyer.
“A rapid CRISPR competitive assay for in vitro and in vivo discovery of potential drug targets affecting the hematopoietic system”

CRISPR never generates a uniform genotype which complicates analyzing the targeted gene’s role without establishing clonal lines. Here we give examples of how the generated genetic heterogeneity can be leveraged for discovery –> RCC!

Very interesting study from Xiang X et al. about gRNA efficiency prediction, including a web based software CRISPRon for gRNA design (https://rth.dk/resources/crispr/crispron/).
Beautiful work from Ferrari et al!
