High Throughput PAM Determination Assay Libraries
(Pooled Libraries #160132, #160133, #160134, #160135)

  • Purpose

    These pooled libraries encode CRISPR-Cas target sites flanked by randomized nucleotides in place of a protospacer adjacent motif (PAM). The libraries are used to determine the PAM requirements of Cas enzymes.

    Each library differs in the CRISPR-Cas target site sequence, the orientation of the randomized nucleotide sequence, and the library complexity.

Library Shipping

This library is delivered as suspended DNA in a microcentrifuge tube on blue ice. The tube's contents will not necessarily be frozen. For best results, minimize freeze-thaws.

  • Volume
    ∼10µL
  • Concentration
    1ng/µL

Depositor Comments

The Kleinstiver Lab created a Github repository sharing the code to perform an analysis of data generated using the HT-PAMDA method.
