Deep learning improves prediction of CRISPR–Cpf1 guide RNA activity
Nat. Biotechnol., 36 (3), 239-241
Date: Jan 29, 2018


We present two algorithms to predict the activity of AsCpf1 guide RNAs. Indel frequencies for 15,000 target sequences were used in a deep-learning framework based on a convolutional neural network to train Seq-deepCpf1. We then incorporated chromatin accessibility information to create the better-performing DeepCpf1 algorithm for cell lines for which such information is available and show that both algorithms outperform previous machine learning algorithms on our own and published data sets.
