An integrated pipeline for mammalian genetic screening.
With the recent advancements in genome editing, next-generation sequencing (NGS), and scalable cloning techniques, scientists can now conduct genetic screens at unprecedented levels of scale and precision. With such a multitude of technologies, there is a need for a simple yet comprehensive pipeline to enable systematic mammalian genetic screening. In this study, we develop unique algorithms for target identification and a toxin-less Gateway cloning tool, termed MegaGate, for library cloning which, when combined with existing genetic perturbation methods and NGS-coupled readouts, enable versatile engineering of relevant mammalian cell lines. Our integrated pipeline for sequencing-based target ascertainment and modular perturbation screening (STAMPScreen) can thus be utilized for a host of cell state engineering applications.
