Announcement: This Saturday at The Science Circle - "CRISPR 2020: Year in Review"


"CRISPR 2020: Year in Review"

Saturday, January 2,

10 AM to 11 AM SL time

Figure Using the genetic scissors, researchers can edit the genome of practically all living things.


Every year there are new advances in genome engineering. In this talk, the most important and interesting news in CRISPR-based gene editing from 2020 will be presented. Come learn about Technology Advances, New Tools, Intellectual Property, and Target Genes and Modified Organisms from a former published practitioner in the field. Of special note this year is the awarding of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry to Jennifer Doudna and Emmanuelle Charpentier for their work in CRISPR. Thus, the talk will start with a little deeper history of its discovery and invention. This year CRISPR was used for more than just gene editing, so those will be of particular interest and discussed as well. 

Non-members can register for the free events through SC members.
