Our aim is to directly empower you to use the CRISPR technology more effectively in your work. Last year, Genome Engineering 4.0 was a great success in allowing us to share our practical experience in person (rather than just online) and highlight cutting edge advances in genome editing technology and application. Genome Engineering 5.0 follows on that tradition with a peer-to-peer workshop May 7th and talks describing some of the most exciting developments in the field on May 8th and 9th.
You will get to hear about recent developments in CRISPR-based genome editing, from improved specificity to novel applications, and have opportunities to meet with experts with hands-on experience in a range of areas. In addition, you'll have a chance to present your own CRISPR work! Selected abstracts will be chosen for short talks, and there will be a poster session so you can get feedback from colleagues and leading figures in the field.
learn about the design, implementation, and analysis of CRISPR experiments;
discuss latest technical advances and share ideas;
troubleshoot your experiments;
explore diverse applications of CRISPR nucleases;
get answers to your questions, both general and specific.
You are encouraged to share your work with your fellow workshop attendees. For this purpose we will have an informal poster session on Monday, May 8. In addition, this year we are choosing four abstracts for selected short talks on Sunday, May 7th, so send us your best work! Abstracts can be submitted via the registration link or email your abstract to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 10.
Do I need to pay for anything?
Based on the feedback from last year, we will be charging $25 for academic attendees to hold your spot and cover coffee and snacks. Please contact the Workshop Team email@example.com if you need financial assitance. The rest of the event is made possible by the generosity of the Broad Institute, Addgene, Benchling, Desktop Genetics, and Twist Bioscience.
