Project Score enables scientists to explore the CRISPR Knockout data using intuitive and interactive interfaces.
Genetic screens are a powerful approach to investigate gene function and can be used to identify new candidate cancer drug targets. In Project Score, we are performing systematic genome-scale CRISPR-Cas9 drop-out screens in a large number of highly-annotated cancer models to identify genes required for cell fitness in defined molecular contexts. These results are used to identify dependencies in cancer cells and could inform the development of new precision cancer medicines. Furthermore, they are a rich resource with applications in basic cell biology, genome engineering and human genetics.
