CRISPR -Cas9 gene editing has received a lot of publicity over recent years. Often presented as an ‘easy’ route to gene modification, like any other biological process, CRISPR -Cas9 has its advantages and challenges. For drug discovery, CRISPR -Cas9 screens have been touted as the new and improved platform for target identification and validation – perceived to have many advantages and few disadvantages compared with siRNA. This talk will focus on whether this viewpoint is justified and whether CRISPR -Cas9 screens will help to move more robust targets into cancer-specific drug discovery.

This talk is part of the Seminars at the Department of Biochemistry series.
