Event description

Description

Join us at InTeahouse for an exclusive CRISPR Workshop! CRISPR is a platform for genome editing and this workshop, led by an expert in the field of biotech, focuses on it's user interface and the technology behind it. You will get to experience a live walk-through of the basic CRISPR cell engineering workflow, so please bring your laptop with you! Our moderator will guide you through generating a knock-out knock-in construct using CRISPR-Cas9 and will work closely with you to help ensure a successful learning experience using this new and exciting technology. This is an exclusive event with very limited seats, so reserve your spot today!


Please sign in at the front desk on the 8th floor, and ask for InTeahouse

Background

By now, those who work in the biotech and life science industry have probably heard about the clustered and regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats. In short, they are the signatures of bacterial immune systems that scientists have hijacked into biological tools for editing genomes. The DNA-based instruction manuals from which all living things are built and maintained.

Since 2012, Largely due to its simplicity, efficiency, and low cost; CRISPR has become the genome-editing platform of choice for life scientists around the world. Often described as “molecular scissors,” the CRISPR system typically has two fundamental components: a strand of guide RNA (gRNA) and a CRISPR-associated endonuclease (e.g., Cas9). Together, they form a search-and-snip complex in which the gRNA takes on a hairpin shape.
