CRISPR/Cas9 genomic editing experiments

The CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing system is a very popular tool for studying gene function due to its relative ease of use and accuracy. Additionally, the system has enormous potential for treating hereditary diseases. Validation of CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing is necessary to ensure that genes of interest are successfully knocked down or knocked out. Here, we demonstrate how Molecular Devices' family of instruments can be utilized in gene editing experiments by using CRISPR/Cas9 to knockdown autophagy-related protein 5 (ATG5) in HEK293 cells.
