Mouse Toronto KnockOut (mTKO) CRISPR Library
(Pooled Libraries #159392, #159393)

  • Purpose

    Mouse lentiviral genome-wide CRISPR library targets protein-coding genes with ~5 gRNAs/gene.

  • Vector Backbone

    #159392: 1 vector system in lentiCRISPRv2 backbone - expresses Cas9
    #159393: 2 vector system in pLCKO2 backbone - does not express Cas9

Library Details

  • Species
  • Genes targeted
  • gRNAs
  • Controls
    418 control gRNAs targeting EGFP, LacZ, and Luciferase
  • Lentiviral Generation

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
    ∼20 µL
  • Concentration
    50 ng/µL

Depositor Comments

The depositing lab recommends using Bayestian Analysis of Gene Essentiality (BAGEL) to analyze fold changes.

MAGeCK/MAGeCK-VISPR algorithms can also be used for analysis.

The DrugZ algorithm is recommended for drug screens.
