Abstract: Given the explosion in human genetic data, new high-throughput genetic methods are necessary for studying variants and elucidating their role in human disease. In Chapter I, I will expand on this concept and describe current methods for genetically modifying human cells. In E. coli, Multiplex Automatable Genome Engineering (MAGE) is a powerful tool that enables the targeting of multiple genomic loci simultaneously with synthetic oligos that are recombined at high frequencies in an optimized strain. MAGE as a method has two components: organism-specific optimization of oligo recombination parameters and a protein capable of increasing recombination frequencies.
