IGI CRISPR Screening Core


We provide high quality CRISPR screening services for IGI members and collaborators. In addition, we help generate custom guide RNA libraries for specific set of candidate genes and cell lines for CRISPR/Cas9 researches. Besides providing fee-based services, the Core performs developmental projects supported by grants or subsidies to develop and improve new CRISPR technologies. Our goal is to improve outcome of high-throughput genome-wide screening via combining it with other top-notch technologies and make that available to our clients.


For inquiries, please contact Dr. Conklin at [email protected]

Note that our previous Core Director has taken another job in the fall of 2017, and Dr. Conklin is covering until we get a replacement.  We appologize of delays in service.
