CRISPR transduction of iPS cells
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
Genome engineering using CRISPR/Cas9 technology enables simple, efficient and precise genomic modifications in human cells. Conventional immortalized cell lines can be easily edited or screened using genome-wide libraries with lentiviral transduction. However, cell types derived from the differentiation of induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (iPSC), which often represent more relevant, patient-derived models for human pathology, are much more difficult to engineer as CRISPR/Cas9 delivery to these differentiated cells can be inefficient and toxic. Here, we present an efficient, lentiviral transduction protocol for delivery of CRISPR/Cas9 to macrophages derived from human iPSC with efficiencies close to 100%. We demonstrate CRISPR/Cas9 knockouts for three non-essential proof-of-concept genes - HPRT1, PPIB and CDK4. We then scale the protocol and validate for a genome-wide pooled CRISPR/Cas9 loss-of-function screen. This methodology enables, for the first time, systematic exploration of macrophage involvement in immune responses, chronic inflammation, neurodegenerative diseases and cancer ... (Show More)

This submission is of the sequencing data used in the CRISPR iPSC methods paper. Specifically it is 3 fastq files that each represent a replicate of an experiment to transduce the Toronto KnockOut CRISPR Library - Version 3 (TKOv3) into inferred pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) derived macrophages. The sequencing is of the guide RNAs from the TKOv3 having been extracted from the transduced iPSC derived macrophages.
