International Conference on CRISPR Technologies

Only one week for the International Conference on CRISPR Technologies that will be in Raleigh, NC.

CRISPR technologies have been widely embraced for both basic and applied research. This space has rapidly moved forward since the first demonstration of Cas9-mediated genome editing with the discovery of new nucleases, the development of diverse and novel CRISPR applications for genome editing, gene regulation, in vitro applications, and the use of CRISPR technologies in diverse organisms including prokaryotes, plants, and animals. All of these diverse CRISPR applications will be discussed in this conference including the use of CRISPR in industrial biotechnology, agriculture, and human health; the intellectual property, ethical, and regulatory implications of CRISPR technologies; and the development, validation, and extension of novel CRISPR technologies and applications.
