CRISPR/Cas genome editing course
CRISPR genome editing is revolutionizing biomedical research, acting as a toolbox, allowing the precise modification of genomic sequences and their regulation in any type of cell and organism. The application of CRISPR in biomedical research is broad and ranges from fundamental research to the clinic. During this new course participants/students will learn about the basic concepts of CRISPR-mediated genome editing and its experimental design. Experts in the field will discuss their work on CRISPR, including large scale screening, generation of disease models, epigenetics and therapeutic applications.
The course concludes with a two-day symposium in which national and international experts in the CRISPR field will present their recent work.
