The CRISPR/CAS9 technique was discovered as a natural defence system in bacteria and archaea against viruses. However, in recent years it has become the most widely used technology for gene editing. Scientists around the world already use this tool to make specific changes in the genome of a wide variety of organisms, both in basic and applied research. Its advantages include speed, efficiency, specificity and cost-effectiveness, allowing the targeted modification of a wide variety of cell types, including mammalian.
Don’t miss the Technical Seminar to be given by Nerea Arias Jayo, PhD, Scientific Director of Abyntek Biopharma, on Wednesday 19 October at the Basque Health Cluster, where she will explain in detail what CRISPR technology consists of, its main applications and the elements necessary to carry out a successful CRISPR experiment.
The session is free but places are limited.
