Weissman Human CRISPRi Titration
(Pooled Libraries #136478, #136479)

  • Purpose

    These libraries contain ~5,000 series of systematically attenuated CRISPRi gRNAs targeting ~2,500 genes involved in central biological processes. The activity of gRNAs within each series vary from fully functional to inactive. When paired with CRISPRi, each series enables titration of a targeted gene from normal expression level to completely knocked down.

    The large-scale library (Addgene #136478) contains two series of gRNA per gene with 23-24 gRNA per series.

    The compact library (Addgene #136479) contains two series of gRNA per gene with 1-9 gRNA per series.
