Identifying Genes Involved in CRISPR/Cas9 Gene Editing
Genome editing is an emerging topic with immediate and significant implications in human health. Despite interest in therapeutic gene editing technologies, such as CRISPR/Cas9, interactions between genome editing reagents and human cells remain poorly understood. Prior work in the Corn Lab identified how human cells integrate single stranded DNA into Cas9 cut sites. My project will build upon this work to establish how cells respond to other gene editing techniques, namely the integration of double stranded DNA into genomic DNA.
