Abstract

Genome-wide, targeted loss-of-function pooled screens using the CRISPR (clustered regularly interspaced short palindrome repeats)–associated nuclease Cas9 in human and mouse cells provide an alternative screening system to RNA interference (RNAi) and have been used to reveal new mechanisms in diverse biological models[1][1]–[4][2]. Previously, we used a Genome-scale CRISPR Knock-Out (GeCKO) library to identify loss-of-function mutations conferring vemurafenib resistance in a melanoma model[1][1]. However, initial lentiviral delivery systems for CRISPR screening had low viral titer or required a cell line already expressing Cas9, limiting the range of biological systems amenable to screening.
