CRISPR is used systematically during the target identification and validation process to knockout, inhibit, and alter the expression levels of certain genes. It helps researchers understand how genes and their expression can improve or diminish disease states, and identify and help better predict how drug candidates may produce beneficial or harmful patient outcomes. Both in vivo and in vitro studies are done using CRISPR technology to facilitate gene knockout and expression level studies in the drug discovery process.
