International Workshop “Genome editing in mammals using CRISPR tools”

>, News>International Workshop “Genome editing in mammals using CRISPR tools”

This workshop will be focused in the latest advances in genome editing in rodents and large animals, using the novel tool
CRISPR/Cas and its variants and modifications. Participants will have the opportunity to spend four days hands-on training with national and international expert speakers working in this cutting edge field.

Twenty selected students from the region and the world will be in close interaction with the speakers during the course and the social activities with the aim to exchange knowledge and relevant information, and discuss ideas and projects.

The workshop will have a strong practical component, where the students will learn how to choose and design the genome editing strategy, apply and deliver the targeting tools into zygotes by microinjection or electroporation, validate CRISPR activity in vivo and identify CRISPR induced genomic modifications.

In addition, they will have the chance to discuss their own projects with the teachers, in order to select the best approaches.
