CRISPR off-target effects is of significant concern during the transition of the system from a basic research tool to clinical settings.  The startup Beacon Genomics aims to aid in this process by offering NGS based, off-target screens: GUIDE-seq and CIRCLE-seq.  These non-biased methods rapidly screen the entire genome for potential off-target effects, enabling researchers and clinicians to optimize CRISPR/Cas treatment conditions.
