Exploring curated CRISPR gRNAs via Shiny

Bioconductor version: Release (3.19)

Provides means to interactively visualize guide RNAs (gRNAs) in GuideSet objects via Shiny application. This GUI can be self-contained or as a module within a larger Shiny app. The content of the app reflects the annotations present in the passed GuideSet object, and includes intuitive tools to examine, filter, and export gRNAs, thereby making gRNA design more user-friendly.
