Discover How to Harness CRISPR Gene Editing for Functional Genomics to Advance
Workshop Leader: Yunde Zhao, Professor, Cell and Developmental Biology, University of California San Diego Workshop Leader: Lanqin Xia, Principal Investigator, Institute of Crop Sciences, Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences

CRISPR gene editing has transformed how academics and industry investigate molecular pathways through whole genome screening and functional genomics. With the industry rapidly optimizing their CRISPR workflows for advanced trait discovery, join your peers at this dedicated interactive workshop to learn about the following:

  • Optimizing CRISPR workflows for enhanced precision gene editing
  • Highlighting examples of gene insertion, deletion, edit genes in plants and crops for functional genomics
  • Enhancing CRISPR technology for whole genome screening and trait discovery
  • Developing tissue culture methodologies and phenotyping in greenhouses or fields
