The Talks on 22nd March,2017 are open to all.


      Genome Editing by CRISPR-Cas9 has revolutionized the process of making DNA-level changes and the implications of this reach far beyond standard molecular biology applications. The CRISPR-Cas9 system can be used as a tool-box for editing, modifying, visualizing and interrogating genomes and can be adapted for numerous other applications depending upon the need of the researcher. At the workshop on CRISPR-Cas9 mediated gene editing, participants will be provided with a hands-on training on how to use this technology for precisely manipulating their own targets starting from design to experimentation and subsequent analysis. The workshop will begin with a day of lectures on gene editing by eminent scientists followed by 3 days of intense training. The workshop is open to Senior PhD students, Postdocs and young PIs.
