Green listed-a CRISPR screen tool

Bioinformatics. 2017 Apr 1;33(7):1099-1100. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btw739.


Motivation: Genome editing using versions of the bacterial CRISPR/Cas9 system can be used to probe the function of selected genes in any organism. Green Listed is a web-based tool that rapidly designs custom CRISPR screens targeting sets of genes defined by the user. It could thus be used to design screens targeting for example all genes differentially expressed during a specific stimuli or all genes related to a specific pathway or function, as well as to generate targeted secondary screens following a large-scale screen.

Availability and implementation: The software, including a demo function as well as explanatory texts and videos, is available through .
