    Benchmark Software and Data for Evaluating CRISPR-Cas9 Experimental Pipelines Through the Assessment of a Calibration Screen

    Genome-wide genetic screens using CRISPR-guide RNA libraries are widely performed in mammalian cells to functionally characterize individual genes and for the discovery of new anticancer therapeutic targets. As the effectiveness of such powerful and precise tools for cancer pharmacogenomics is emerging, tools and methods for their quality assessment are becoming increasingly necessary. Here, we provide […]

    RAGE engagement by SARS-CoV-2 enables monocyte infection and underlies COVID-19 severity

    The spread of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has fueled the COVID-19 pandemic with its enduring medical and socioeconomic challenges because of subsequent waves and long-term consequences of great concern. Here, we chart the molecular basis of COVID-19 pathogenesis by analyzing patients’ immune responses at single-cell resolution across disease course and severity. This […]

    Highlights from the 1st European cancer dependency map symposium and workshop

    The systematic identification of tumour vulnerabilities through perturbational experiments on cancer models, including genome editing and drug screens, is playing a crucial role in combating cancer. This collective effort is known as the Cancer Dependency Map (DepMap). The 1st European Cancer Dependency Map Symposium (EuroDepMap), held in Milan last May, featured talks, a roundtable discussion, and a poster […]
