StratCan workshop on CRISPR/Cas9

Theory & hands on workshop to design and use the CRISPR/Cas9 system for in vitro (cells) and in vivo (mice) applications.

The workshop takes place January 7-8, 2015 at KI Science Park, room Air & Fire (address: Tomtebodavägen 23 A).

Invited Speakers

  • Kosuke Yusa, Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute
  • Vera Grinkevich, Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute
  • Feng Zhang, Broad Institute of MIT
  • Haoyi Wang, 1. Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) 2. The Jackson Laboratory

Preliminary program

The workshop is composed of:

A. Theory / Background

B. In vitro use (cells)

C. In vivo use (mice)

The final program will be tailor made according to the participants needs.
