Identification of antiviral restriction factors

We propose a systematic, unbiased approach at identifying cellular restriction factors of DNA viruses using the powerful CRISPR/Cas9 knockout technology, through a lentiviral sgRNA library targeting each human gene with several independent constructs. Our focus is on cellular factors that restrict or promote the replication of Herpesviruses and/or limit the growth of tumor cells transformed by KSHV and EBV. These factors represent primary therapeutic targets.
