CRISPR-Based System Identifies New Drug Targets in Aggressive Leukemia

Results of a CRISPR screen for drug targets in leukemia that are both powerful in their impact and as specific possible to subtypes of leukemia. Left to right: different leukemia subtypes; top to bottom: different potential protein targets. Intensity of color corresponds with degree of a cancer subtype's dependency on the target. Vakoc's team focused on MEF2C, a transcription factor. Credit: Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory
