Mapping a genetic perturbation to a change in phenotype is at the core of biological research. Advances in microscopy have transformed these studies, but they have largely been confined to examining a few strains or cell lines at a time. In parallel, there has been a revolution in creating synthetic libraries of genetically altered cells with relative ease. Here we describe methods that combine these powerful tools to perform live-cell imaging of pool-generated strain libraries for improved biological discovery.
