To know yourself and your adversaries through high fidelity, actionable intelligence, that constantly informs your decisions and guides a dynamic security posture, is the new battleground. And I look forward to bringing my frontline operational and strategic experience to Anomali customers and partners. With cyberattacks on the rise, ever more complex and multidimensional, organizations require an integrated XDR solution to tell them who they are up against, why, when they are being attacked, and how to accelerate their multifaceted response. The Anomali Platform greatly enhances an organization’s ability to address newly detected attacks, cresting threats and subsequent future attacks. Put simply, confidence in the face of uncertainty.”

Parse Biosciences Launches CRISPR Detect8.6.2023 15:07:00 EEST | Press release
Parse Biosciences, a leading provider of accessible and scalable single cell sequencing solutions, announced today the launch of CRISPR Detect, enabling single cell pooled CRISPR screens at unprecedented scale. Bulk pooled CRISPR screening has been a valuable tool to understand gene function on a genome scale. Adding single cell resolution to pooled CRISPR screens pairs individual gene perturbations with rich whole transcriptome expression phenotypes. This approach has expanded the capabilities of pooled CRISPR screening to understand cell types of perturbed cells and quantify changes in gene expression, regulatory networks, signaling pathways, and other complex signatures. However, the applications and scale of these studies have been limited by the throughput and cost of droplet-based single cell RNA-seq technology. CRISPR Detect brings the scale of existing Parse Evercode technology to single cell CRISPR screening by enabling users to pair perturbations and transcriptional profiles
