Each year, we host a workshop at the Broad Institute open to anyone who wants to learn more about genome engineering and get one-on-one advice about implementing CRISPR-mediated tools in their research. 

Genome Engineering Workshop

Information and protocols for high-throughput loss-of-function screening with Cas9 can be found on the Sanjana lab webiste.

Library screening resources

Interested in RNA targeting? We have written a primer on using Cas13.
