The workshop is ideal for basic and translational research scientists who want to apply genome engineering technologies – ZFNs, TALENs and CRISPR/Cas9 - to their research projects. The workshop lectures are delivered by experts in the field, whose objectives are to introduce the basics of genome engineering, state-of-art gene editing applications and the limitations of genome editing technologies. Lectures will also address ethical issues of genome editing such as eugenics, human embryo editing. The workshop is also designed to provide the participants with hands-on training on genome editing of human cells using NHEJ (knocking-out a gene) and HDR (knocking-in a gene and correction of a gene). With the completion of the course, the participants will be familiar with the basics of genome editing, will be able to design sgRNA for their gene of interest and perform cell culture genome editing experiments using CRISPR/Cas9.
PhD students, Post-doctoral fellows, Research scientists and young investigators from academics and industry.
