CRISPR systems can cleave and precisely incorporate DNA into defined locations in the genome. These elegant machineries evolved to protect microbes from phage invaders but have recently been repurposed by scientists as powerful tools for biological discovery and biotechnology. CRISPR-based platforms are now being used to engineer genomes, to regulate gene expression, and as alternatives to RNAi-based screening. Building on these accomplishments to unleash the full potential of CRISPR-based technologies will require a deeper understanding of the basic biology of how these systems work.

This wide-ranging Cell Symposium will showcase the latest research on:

  • the basic biology of CRISPR systems
  • optimizing repair of CRISPR-generated DNA breaks
  • cutting-edge CRISPR-based technologies for biomedical research
  • novel applications of CRISPR for treating disease

Join us at this Cell Symposium to meet leading CRISPR researchers, learn about exciting unpublished work, and to gain practical insights into applying CRISPR technology to your own research.

We hope to see you there!
