    CRISPR-Cas9 technology has become a powerful tool for forward genetic screening. Mutant libraries of various functions can be constructed by CRISPR, and the genes related to this function then identified through functional screening and enrichment, PCR amplification, and deep sequencing analysis.

    Synbio Technologies provides one-stop gene function screening services based on the CRISPR-Cas9 sgRNA library system. With our proprietary Syno® 3.0 DNA synthesis platform, we can construct a sgRNA library in a fast and efficient manner. We can also package the library into lentivirus, transfect cells, perform high throughput/content screening, and finally identify the target genes by sequencing and data analysis.

    CRISPR-Cas9 sgRNA Library Design Case Study

    Screening resistance targets for a drug with identified function


    1. The function and lethal dose of the drug have been already identified.
    2. CRISPR-Cas9 library was synthesized and transfected into cells using lentivirus.
    3. Screening: drug of high concentration acting on the mixed cell clone continuously over a short period, then screening the survived cells. These cells are considered to be resistant to this drug. The reason why these cells gain a resistance to this drug is due to mutagenesis caused by CRISPR-Cas9 gRNA.
    4. Perform NGS and bioinformatics analysis on the surviving cells, analyze information about the gRNA, and then identify the genes involved in conferring drug resistance.


    1. Identification of 6 genes involved in PLX resistant when mutant
    2. Identification of NF2 as the resistant target of PLX in melanoma
