In recent years, CRISPR/Cas9 technology has developed rapidly. With its accurate, fast, and simple editing functions that can achieve gene activation, interference, knockout, and knock-in, it has become a powerful genetic screening tool that is widely used in various models, including cell lines of mice and zebrafish. The use of CRISPR system to construct a genomic library for high-throughput screening is the main strategy for research of disease, especially tumor target gene research. This article reviews the basic principles and latest developments of CRISPR/Cas9 library screening technology strategies to improve its off-target effect, the basic workflow of library screening, and its application in tumor research.
