“CRISPEY” is an efficient modification that uses hybrid RNA molecules to make CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing technology high-throughput in a massively parallel and precise manner. Jiwoo’s project aims to modify this approach for mammalian cells in order to study polygenic traits, which are traits controlled by multiple genes, to reveal a deeper understanding of complex human diseases.
