What do you mean by essential gene?

The term essential refers to the gene being critical to the viability of the cell. We perform gene trapping and according to our data set, the algorithm predicts there was an indication that the gene SLC16A1 would be essential within the HAP1 cell line. Based on a customer request, we attempted the knockout and were successful in producing viable clones.
