New isogenic cell models created by CRISPR genome editing for drug discovery

In this webinar, ATCC experts address how CRISPR genome editing was used to create novel human cell models that contain disease-relevant point mutations and gene rearrangements. In addition, we will introduce a new type of BRAF inhibitor-resistant cell line that was created by using CRISPR/Cas9 to insert the NRAS Q61K mutation. These human isogenic lines provide useful disease models for the identification and validation of new therapeutics.

Transforming Molecular Diagnostics

The accurate diagnosis of vector-borne diseases can be complicated due to similar clinical presentations, cross-reactivity, or the possibility of co-infection. Thus, there is a need for rapid and accurate methods of detection that can reliably distinguish between causative agents. This webinar discusses how high-quality standards from ATCC were used to meet this need.
