Dow Lab Base Editing Sensor Libraries
(Pooled Library #179217, #179218, #179219)

  • Purpose

    The Mouse Base Editing Sensor (MBES) and Human Base Editing Sensor (HBES) libraries are made up of sgRNAs that target frequently occurring cancer-associated mutations identified in the MSK IMPACT dataset that can be modeled with cytosine base editing. The ALL-PAM sensor (AP) library is made up of 10 human and mouse sgRNAs, where for each sgRNA the tethered target site has 1 of 64 possible 3-bp PAM sequences. Notably these "sensor libraries" also contain the cognate genomic target site within the same expression cassette for quantification of base editing efficiency.

  • Vector Backbone

    pLenti-U6-tdTomato-P2A-BlasR (LRT2B) - does not express base editor

Resource Information

Depositor Comments

Explore the library targets and browse guide RNAs by species, gene, target mutation, and/or base editor at the BE-SCAN web application (Link opens in a new window). The base editor sensor libraries were generated using the AMINEsearch pipeline available on GitHub (Link opens in a new window).

A script for analyzing base-editing sensor outcomes is available on GitHub (Link opens in a new window).
