Repair-seq is an experimental approach for systematically mapping DNA repair pathways by measuring the effects of many different genetic perturbations on the distribution of mutations produced at targeted DNA damage.

Repair-seq can be applied to study the basic biology of DNA repair and to learn how different genome editing technologies interact with endogenous repair processes, enabling the design of more efficient and precise editing tools.
