How CRISPR–Cas9 Screening will revolutionise your drug development programs

CRISPR-Cas9 mediated genome editing provides a novel and highly efficient way to probe gene function. Using this technology, thousands of genes can be knocked out and their function assessed in a single experiment. This makes CRISPR-Cas9 screening a powerful tool for drug target ID and validation, understanding drug mechanisms of action and patient stratification.

CRISPR Drug Development

In this webinar, we use our experience with CRISPR-Cas9 to discuss the power and applicability of CRISPR-Cas9 screening technologies. We focus on how to use this technology to address important biological questions, and consider what’s possible, what’s plausible and what constitutes a ‘hit’. We also highlight Horizon’s latest developments to the CRISPR-Cas9 screening platform.
