The Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian
Academy of Sciences and Haplogen GmbH have generated a
library of haploid knockout human cells that, for the first time, allows for
the systematic interrogation of gene function in vitro.1 The
partners are completing the library, although the collection already is
available to the scientific community and is being used for Haplogen's internal
drug discovery efforts.
