Study Description

Sequencing is performed on PCR products from the amplification of gRNA segments introduced into cell lines (some are commercial, some are derived by collaborators, as described in HMDMC 13/076). Cellular DNA or RNA are not sequenced. This data is defined as "Other Biological/Biochemical Assay Data" under the WTSI datasharing guidelines and consequently will be released at the time of publication and/or through faculty websites. SEQUENCING DETAILS: in October 2016 3 DNA samples will be submitted for PCR amplification and purification through CGP pipeline using Thompson's custom primer set and PCR settings and sequencing with Hiseq using a custom protocol (with 3 forward reads to read sgRNA1, sgRNA2 and the index, optimized with Illumina Bespoke Sanger team); read length 50bp. The following set of samples will be submitted in later 2016 and ealry 2017 as cell pellet to be processed through CGP Cas9 pipeline (Thompson's oligos and protocols) and sequences on Hiseq (same custom sequencing protocol described above) We are utilizing a custom CRISPR/Cas9 library to identify synthetic ...

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
Genetic redundancy has evolved as a way for human cells to survive the loss of genes that are single copy and essential in other organisms, but also allows tumours to survive despite having highly rearranged genomes. In this study we CRISPR screen 1,191 gene pairs, including paralogues and known and predicted synthetic lethal interactions to identify 105 gene combinations whose co-disruption results in a loss of cellular fitness. 27 pairs influence fitness across multiple cell lines including ...
