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.

POSTER SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Virtual poster sessions offer the opportunity to present data to a global audience via a PDF poster and video summary, and discuss results with interested colleagues through email. Posters should be submitted as a PowerPoint file. Presentations should incorporate illustrative materials such as tables, graphs, photographs, and large-print text. This content is not peer-reviewed. Submission is free.

SUBMIT YOUR ABSTRACT

Enter the following information to this Submission Form:

  • Poster Title
  • Your Name
  • Your Institution
  • Your Email
  • Abstract describing the poster

All submitted abstracts will be reviewed and decisions regarding acceptance will be made as abstracts are received. You will be notified within one week of receipt about acceptance. Further details and registration materials will be provided at that time. You do not have to be present in order to have a poster displayed. Only those abstracts approved by LabRoots may display posters at this event.

If accepted, you will also have the opportunity to record a 3-5 minute summary video for each poster. LabRoots will work with each individual to create these videos. Video links and email contact information will be included on each poster displayed.
