Event description


Concept and purpose

This afternoon seminar aims:

  • To improve the visibility of CRISPR research in Denmark

  • To establish a local network for knowledge sharing

  • To speed up the process from generating ideas to testing by creating a CRISPR discussion forum

  • To foster new collaborations, talent development and recruitment

There will be talks from several CRISPR users that will highlight the potential of this technique.

The last talk will be from Virginijus Siksnys from the Institute of Biotechnology, Vilnius University. Virginijus was among the first to demonstrate programmable DNA cleavage by the Cas9 protein.

After the last talk, you are invited to participate to the dinner reception on the 15th floor of the Maersk Tower when you will be able to meet all the speakers.
