Transomic CRISPR library to be implemented at McGill University


Posted on February 1st, 2019

Huntsville, Ala. – Transomic Technologies, an associate company located on the campus of HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology,  has announced that their CRISPR whole genome arrayed library has been placed at McGill University, supported by the Rosalind and Morris Goodman Cancer Research Centre. Transomic’s CRISPR library will be in the care of Dr. Sidong Huang, director of the Genetic Perturbation Service which provides McGill research labs rapid access to the latest functional genetic tools.

“Transomic’s CRISPR library is an important and exciting asset to the McGill research community,” said  Dr. Huang. “Complementary to the existing genomic tools at the Genetic Perturbation Service, this CRISPR library will enable McGill researchers to systemically perform gene knockout and interrogate gene function, greatly enhancing their research capacity for basic and translational research.”

These CRISPR genome-editing tools and other gene modulation tools can be purchased through Transomic Technologies at www.transomic.com.
