TechTalk Genome Editing

This Techtalk will focus on Genome editing. Six speakers with different background will address applications of CRISPR-Cas technology in microbiology and haematology therapy and in agriculture. Also, the transition of CRISPR-Cas technology from fundamental research to commerce and the risks of gene drives will be discussed. During the Q&A we invite everyone to participate and share your insights on the challenges, advantages and roles of genome editing in the near future.
