The Biological General Repository for Interaction Datasets (BioGRID) is an interaction, post-translational modification, and chemical association repository with data compiled through comprehensive curation efforts

CRISPR Screen data in BioGRID ORCS can be accessed via the BioGRID ORCS REST web service. Screens in various formats can be fetched from the BioGRID ORCS REST Service over HTTPS, programmatically or in a browser.

BioGRID themed curation projects focus on specific biological processes with disease relevance. Core genes/proteins central to the process are assembled with expert input and relevant publications curated for biological interactions. Themed curation projects are updated monthly and additional projects are generated on a regular basis.

Our latest BioGRID ORCS CRISPR Database update adds 3 new screens from the preprint study, "Functional genomic screens identify human host factors for SARS-CoV-2 and common cold coronaviruses" by Wang R et al. (BioRxiv, 2020.09.24.312298). In this preprint, the authors performed CRISPR screens in cells infected by SARS-CoV-2 as well as two seasonally circulating common cold coronaviruses, OC43 and 229E. These screens identified nearly 200 host proteins and their related pathways which may support coronavirus viral infection in a manner shared by mulitple members of the Coronaviridae family and over 390 genes whose loss reduced SARS-CoV-2 infection specifically. General host factors included SCAP activity and suggest cholesterol levels may play a role in coronavirus progression, which is consistent with recent interaction data published in the literature. The results of this study also suggest that the poorly characterized TMEM106B gene may play a role in SARS-CoV-2 progression exclusively.

The latest update of BioGRID (build 4.1.190) adds 11,000+ new SARS-CoV-2/Human Proximity Label-MS interactions from our latest two featured datasets "A SARS-CoV-2 BioID-based virus-host membrane protein interactome and virus peptide compendium: new proteomics resources for COVID-19 research" by St-Germain JR et al. (bioRxiv, 2020.08.28.269175) and "A SARS-CoV-2 - host proximity interactome" by Samavarchi-Tehrani P et al. (bioRxiv, 2020.09.03.282103). These two studies used proximity-dependent biotinylation labeling (BioID) coupled with mass spectrometric identification to uncover high confidence interactions between SARS-CoV-2 encoded proteins and human host cell proteins. These two virus-host interaction networks cover more than 1000 and 2000 host proteins, respectively. This work reveals new aspects of virus-host biology and suggests new candidate host targets for inhibition of viral replication. In addition to being available in BioGRID search results, downloads, and our REST service, the data from Samavarchi-Tehrani can also be accessed at covid19interactome.org.

A special thanks to Anne-Claude Gingras, Brian Raught and their colleagues for assistance with loading the data and a big thanks, of course, to all authors of the St-Germain (2020) study: St-Germain JR, Astori A, Samavarchi-Tehrani P, Abdouni H, Macwan V, Kim D, Knapp JJ, Roth FP, Gingras A, and Raught B and all authors of the Samavarchi-Tehrani P (2020) study: Samavarchi-Tehrani P, Abdouni H, Knight JD, Astori A, Samson R, Lin Z, Kim D, Knapp JJ, St-Germain J, Go CD, Larsen B, Wong CJ, Cassonnet P, Demeret C, Jacob Y, Roth FP, Raught B, and Gingras A as well.

Our latest BioGRID ORCS CRISPR Database update adds a new screen from the study, "Genome-wide CRISPR synthetic lethality screen identifies a role for the ADP-ribosyltransferase PARP14 in DNA replication dynamics controlled by ATR" by Dhoonmoon A et al. (Nucleic Acids Res, 2020). For this dataset, a genome-wide CRISPR knockout screen was carried out in PARP14-deficient cells identifying synthetic lethal interactors of PARP14, including several components of the ATR DNA replication stress pathway. The ATR-CHK1 pathway was found to be essential for viability of PARP14-deficient cells. This indicates that the status of the PARP14 gene in a tumor may be an important determinant of its response to DNA damage response (DDR)inhibitors, such as ATR–CHK1 pathway inhibitors which are being developed as anti-cancer drugs.

A special thanks to the authors Dhoonmoon A, Schleicher EM, Clements KE, Nicolae CM and Moldovan GL and the Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology at PennState. We'd also like to specifically thank author George-Lucian Moldovan for working with us to ensure this dataset was deposited directly into our CRISPR Database.

Our latest BioGRID Featured Dataset added 6,400+ new human co-fractionation interactions from the study "Rewiring of the Human Mitochondrial Interactome during Neuronal Reprogramming Reveals Regulators of the Respirasome and Neurogenesis" by Moutaoufik MT et al (iScience, Sept. 2019). This study provides an experimentally derived catalog of protein interactions between over 600 mitochondrial proteins. These interactions can help reveal functions for uncharacterized genes, as seen for C20orf24.
