Join us for a Technical Seminar and Office Hours: Genome Engineering With CRISPR/Cas9


CRISPR/Cas9 is a new genomic editing system that has the potential to revolutionize biomedical research with its simple and efficient design. In this 45-minute seminar, we will thoroughly examine the CRISPR system and some of its applications in the laboratory.

Topics will include:

  • CRISPR Design & Function
  • Efficiency & Specificity
  • Paired Nicases for Improved Specificity
  • Gene Knockout, Insertion, and Modification
  • RNA Format for Embryo Microinjection
  • CRISPR Core Partnership with the ICBR
