Our paper on pathogenic mechanisms of cardiomyopathy caused by RBM20 mutations analyzed in genome-edited iPS cell-derived cardiomyocytes is finally published. This is literately "finally" published, as this project started when I joined the Conklin lab as a postdoc. At that time, the lab has just started genome editing in human iPS cells. We had a list of mutations that cause cardiomyopathy. I chose RBM20 and a few other genes to start editing them. The first mutation in RBM2
