Abstract

Aim: to carry out CRISPR/Cas9 tests to identify cellular factors involved in infection with SARS-CoV-2 and antiviral proteins that inhibit its replication. These approaches will lead to the identification of key cellular factors that may serve as virulence determinants and therapeutic targets.This research particularly concerns lung cells, the main targets of the virus.
