Project Score database
Genetic screens to identify cancer dependencies and drug targets
Genetic screens are a powerful approach to investigate gene function and can be used to identify new candidate cancer drug targets. In Project Score, we are performing systematic genome-scale CRISPR-Cas9 drop-out screens in a large number of highly-annotated cancer models to identify genes required for cell fitness in defined molecular contexts. These results are used to identify dependencies in cancer cells and could inform the development of new precision cancer medicines. Furthermore, they are a rich resource with applications in basic cell biology, genome engineering and human genetics. These datasets will continue to grow as more data are generated.
The Project Score database enables scientists to explore these data using intuitive and interactive interfaces. Project Score is part of the Cancer Dependency Map at the Sanger, which aims to identify all dependencies in every cancer cell.
