This dataset contains the results of screening 485 cancer cell lines with the Avana CRISPR-Cas9 genome-scale knockout library generated as part of the Broad Institute's Cancer Dependency Map project. It includes the results 49 lines not previously made public.

As our screening efforts continue, we will be releasing additional cancer dependency data on a quarterly basis for unrestricted use. For the latest datasets available, further analyses, and to subscribe to our mailing list visit https://depmap.org.

Descriptions of the experimental methods and the CERES algorithm are published in http://dx.doi.org/10.1038/ng.3984. Some cell lines were process using copy number data based on the Sanger Institute whole exome sequencing data (COSMIC: http://cancer.sanger.ac.uk.cell_lines, EGA accession number: EGAD00001001039) reprocessed using CCLE pipelines.
