Keynote Presentation: Measurements and Standards to Support Confidence in Genome Editing

Presented at: CRISPR 2018
Speaker

Abstract

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), is the measurement institute of the U.S., supplying unbiased expertise in measurements and standards to support growth in all sectors of economy and commerce including healthcare and the bio-economy.  Confidence and comparability of measurements are critical to underpinning any scientific effort including the genome editing field.  Through a newly launched NIST-led Genome Editing Consortium, NIST is working with experts in the genome editing field to identify and develop solutions for pre-competitive needs for establishing confidence in assessing the results of genome editing process.  Leading pre-competitive needs the consortium will address are: shared process control samples, reference data and standard data formats, minimum information norms, and standard terminology. This talk will give an introduction measurement assurance and overview of the newly launched NIST-led Genome Editing Consortium.

Learning Objectives: 

1. Gain a better understanding of how community norms and standards can help give confidence in data and accelerate the genome editing field 
2. Gain knowledge of the NIST Genome Editing Consortium and the ongoing efforts to develop genome editing community standards and norms
