Rapid advances in genome profiling and analysis have illuminated many genomic changes related to human disease. The ability to interrogate the functional roles of such variants in pathogenesis and their potential as therapeutic targets is critical for the development of new medicines. CRISPR tools that systematically reverse-engineer cellular processes through rapid and precise perturbations...... More >
