The cell relies on a certain set of "essential" genes to carry out basic functions for survival (transcription, translation, cell division, etc.). Luke Funk, Paul Blainey, and colleagues teamed up with Kuan-Chung Su, Iain Cheeseman and others at Whitehead Institute to explore more than 5,000 essential human genes' functions using a massive, CRISPR-based, pooled optical screening approach. Their method, described in Cell, allows researchers to both see which gene in a given cell is disrupted and measure microscopically the disruption's functional impact, enabling predictions about how genes work and operate together.

Less than two percent of the human genome is made up of genes that code for proteins, with the remaining 98 percent being non-coding and involved in regulating gene expression. Scientists have now found that changes in the non-coding regions of the genome can have clinical consequences. In a new study, researchers at the Broad and Massachusetts General Hospital have discovered that structural variants in the non-coding region near a gene called MEF2C — a transcription factor that has been linked to neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs) — can mimic the effects of changes in the gene itself. The project, led by Kiana Mohajeri, Rachita Yadav, and Michael Talkowski, is the first to describe the long-range effects of coding and non-coding MEF2C variants in human neuronal cell lines, and suggest both indirect and direct disruptions of the gene can have similar downstream effects.
