Chemical Genomics Core Facility seminar: CRISPR-based screening

October 30, 2020 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm America/Indiana/Indianapolis Timezone

The IU School of Medicine Chemical Genomics Core Facility (CGCF) is planning web-based tutorials and seminar presentations about some of their new services.

The first event will be on Friday, October 30 at 4 pm. It will be about CRISPR-based screening by Jingwei Meng, PhD.

CRISPR screening is a genetic loss-of-function approach that identifies the genes in a particular pool, such as DNA Damage Response (229 genes), Protein Kinases (746 genes), or Transcription factors (1580 genes), which are responsible for the phenotype of your interests. Chemical Genomics Core researchers will assist you with experimental design, CRISPR library selection, high-throughput equipment training and usage. In this seminar, Meng will present the usage of current DNA Damage Response library in two of recent screening projects and explain the existing standard protocols for such arrayed CRISPR screening at CGCF. The CGCF is currently collecting potential CRISPR-related projects and closely working with IU Genome Editing Center (IUGEC) to bring researchers an integrated service suite of genome technology.
