CRISPRi Cell Line

New cell line lets researchers use CRISPR to reversibly switch off genes

‘CRISPR interference,’ or CRISPRi, enables study of basic cell biology and disease in human stem cells. The technique’s co-creator, UCSF’s Martin Kampmann, has teamed up with the Allen Institute for Cell Science to release a CRISPRi stem cell line for any researcher to use.

Open Science Education Resources

Open Science Week | Supporting education and research

In September, we launched Open Science Week, a campaign to celebrate and promote the value of open science. We asked college science teachers to share how they are using resources from the Allen Institute to help remote education during the COVID-19 pandemic for a news article; and Cell Science advisor Jennifer Lippincott-Schwartz shared her views on the importance of open science in a video.

Skeletal and cardiac muscle cell lines

New cell lines and plasmids available

In addition to the CRISPRi stem cell line, our researchers also released a cardiac and skeletal muscle-specific line that tags dystrophin with mEGFP, and two new donor plasmids used to create the mEGFP-tagged dystrophin cell line and mEGFP-tagged mitochondrial transcription factor A (TFAM) cell line, which labels mitochondrial nucleoids.
