Talk: Quantitative and multiplexed in vivo functional cancer genomics using barcoded CRISPR libraries

Large-scale sequencing of human tumors has uncovered a vast array of genomic alterations. Genetically engineered mouse models recapitulate many features of human cancer and have been instrumental in assigning biological meaning to specific cancer-associated alterations. However, their time, cost- and labor-intensive nature limits their broad utility; thus, the functional importance of the majority of genomic aberrations in cancer remains unknown. Here, we combine genetically engineered mouse models of cancer with CRISPR-mediated genome editing, DNA barcoding, and next-generation sequencing to simultaneously investigate the function of many genomic alterations in vivo and uncover novel biological and clinically actionable insights into carcinogenesis.
