CRISPR-SCREENS IN ORGANELLE AUTOPHAGY- REVIEW PUBLISHED IN TRENDS IN CELL BIOLOGY
Are you interested in autophagy of really big things in the cells, such as organelles? Are you wondering how cutting-edge genetic tools can accelerate your autophagy research? Jin Rui Liang (Amos), a former postdoc, now running his own group at the University of Dundee, wrote a comprehensive review on CRISPR’s impact on autophagy research. Amos outlines the major considerations for CRISPR-based genetic manipulations in autophagy, with a focus on genome-wide screening, as well as various reporter systems for high-throughput autophagy quantification. The article thoroughly summarizes all the relevant info on recently performed autophagy-related screens and their discoveries. Have a CRISPR-view on autophagy, now out in Trends in Cell Biology!
