Probe-Seq: Method for RNA Sequencing of Specific Cell Types from Animal Tissue
Most organs and tissues are composed of many types of cells. To characterize cellular state, various transcription profiling approaches are currently available, including whole-tissue bulk RNA sequencing, single cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-Seq), and ...
Synthetic Lethality Screens Using RNAi in Combination with CRISPR-based Knockout in Drosophila Cells
Authors:  Benjamin E. Housden, Hilary E. Nicholson and Norbert Perrimon, date: 02/05/2017, view: 7802, Q&A: 0
A synthetic lethal interaction is a type of genetic interaction where the disruption of either of two genes individually has little effect but their combined disruption is lethal. Knowledge of synthetic lethal interactions can allow for elucidation ...
