This 2-day meeting hosted by the Zhang lab combines a peer-to-peer workshop session on the 13th with a day of talks from scientists developing and working with genome engineering tools on the 14th. The talks this year will be focused on outstanding challenges in the field, ranging from questions about what other tools we need to how we can safely apply them.
You will get to hear about recent developments in CRISPR-based genome editing, meet with experts with hands-on experience in a range of areas, and present your own CRISPR work at 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.
The workshop will kick off on Sunday afternoon with presentations from members of the Zhang lab and other experts about working with CRISPR-based tools in the lab, followed by breakouts and a poster session. Monday will feature talks from leaders in the field focused on outstanding challenges in genome engineering.

You will receive practical advice on:
Basics of targeted mutagenesis
High throughput applications and data analysis
Pooled knockout screens
Understanding specificity and off-target effects
Analysis of targeting efficiency and off-target events
You are encouraged to share your work with your fellow workshop attendees. For this purpose we will have a poster session on Sunday, May 13th. Abstracts can be submitted via the registration link or email your abstract to email@example.com by April 16.
Do I need to pay for anything?
Registration for the full workshop is $25 for academic attendees and $100 for industry attendess. This money helps cover the cost of meals served during the workshop. The rest of the event is made possible by the generosity of the Broad Institute.
We do not offer lodging, so you will need to make our own arrangements. There are several nearby hotels - there are two Marriotts and the Kendall Hotel are just a short walk from the Broad. The Broad is right off the Red Line subway at the Kendall/MIT stop, so anyplace that is near the Red Line will also be convenient for getting to the meeting.
Can't make it to Cambridge? We will be live-streaming the event. Check back for information on signing up for the live-stream.
