Human Genome Engineering using CRISPR/Cas9

28/04/2020
CRISPR, one of the powerful scientific stories of the decade, has the potential to revolutionise several areas of biology including medicine and agriculture. Notably CRIPSR is emerging as a rapid diagnostic tool. Due to its simplicity and reproducibility, CRISPR genome engineering could be used successfully to accelerate both basic and applied research in diseases. The Genome Engineering lab at the University of Westminster aims to explore the potential of CRISPR Cas9 technology to combat cancer treatment. We are intensively involved in training Doctoral and graduate students and have successfully applied CRISPR technology to generate several cellular models to study DNA replication dyamics in cancers.
The course will provide insights in to the basics of CRISPR gene – editing and hands-on training in human cell engineering using the robust CRISPR Cas9 system. We will also introduce the attendees to successful sgRNA design and analysis strategies and the state-of-art methods that could be used to address their own genome engineering needs.
This CRISPR beginners course is aimed at graduate students and scientists with a good understanding of cellular and molecular biology and interest in human genome editing. The course is relevant for researchers venturing into genome engineering for the first time.
