Single nucleotide variants (SNVs) shape cellular phenotypes and disease susceptibility in cancer. To investigate the functional consequences of SNVs, scientists use single nucleotide CRISPR base editors to make precise genetic changes.

In this Technique Talk, Francisco J. Sánchez-Rivera will discuss how to develop base editor sensor libraries for the high-throughput analysis of causative variants in preclinical cancer models.

Learning Objectives

  • How to engineer and manipulate single nucleotide bases with precision in cells and organisms
  • How single nucleotide changes influence cancer initiation and progression
