CANCER GENETICS

Evaluating tumor-suppressor gene combinations

Subjects

In vivo verification of tumor suppressors and their interactions with each other has required complex experiments. A report in this issue uses a novel CRISPR–Cas9 technology with barcodes to test, in parallel, the tumorigenic potential of functional loss of multiple tumor-suppressor genes in the context of a genetically engineered mouse model of lung adenocarcinoma with mutant Kras.
