CRISPR Virtual Event Series 2018

Our 1st Annual Event in the CRISPR Virtual Event Series is now available On Demand!

With continued adoption and integration in research labs, CRISPR gene editing has gained importance both as a research tool in drug discovery, screening, and therapeutic development. This inaugural event will bring together thought leaders from academia, trained researcher from clinical laboratories, and industry experts from pharmaceutical to biotech.

This exciting new field is faced with new challenges and limitations. Experts will share case studies and experiences regarding best practices to guide RNA design, effects associated with CRISPR/Cas and address appropriate alternatives that are currently being developed.
 

Topic's for this years event included: 

  • CRISPR-Cas Immunity
  • Agricultural Engineering
  • Clinical Applications
  • Functional Genomics/Bioinformatics
     

This complimentary conference offers a fantastic opportunity to benefit from interacting with a global community of like-minded colleagues from the comfort of home. Topics of discussion include the distinctions and abilities of CRISPR-based editing, next-gen editing tools, precision in gene editing and using CRISPR for drug discovery. As our first-ever annual event on CRISPR, we aim to further the conversation of cannabis sciences and analytical research.
 
Our virtual conference allows you to participate in a global setting with no travel or cost to you. You can take part in exactly those parts which you are interested in and be back at your desk or bench in an instant. Virtual events remove time and place restrictions and ensure that everyone who wants to participate can do so. This virtual conference also offers increased reach for the global clinical community with a high degree of interaction through live-streaming video and chat sessions.

Don't forget to participate in our Leaderboard and Scavenger Hunt to win one of our Free Science T-shirts!
