Rock Lab Mycobacterium smegmatis CRISPRi Library
(Pooled Library #163955)

  • Purpose

    This CRISPR repression library inhibits expression of open reading frames (ORFs) and non-coding RNAs in M. smegmatis (RLC11).

    The anhydrotetracycline (ATc)-inducible CRISPRi library was constructed in an L5-integrating backbone. It can be used in competitive growth experiments to reveal gene vulnerability.
