AstraZeneca-CRUK Functional Genomics Centre’s (FGC) vision is to accelerate the development of new treatments for people with cancer. The FGC generates pooled drug-CRISPR screen data for uncovering novel targets to battle resistance to cancer therapies. This talks focuses on our FAIR data strategy, integration of drug-CRISPR data with other large scale pre/clinical data sets and AI mining approaches to triage the pooled drug-CRISPR hits with a clear impact on oncology new target strategy.
