CRISPR & Plant Genome Editing III
(July 8-9, 2022)
Welcome to the 3rd International Conference “CRISPR & Plant Genome Editing III”!
CRISPR – CAS9 System revolutionized Life Sciences and Plant Biotechnology that seek to develop new technologies for the precise manipulation of genes and genomes in cellula and in vivo. In addition to its use for advancing our understanding of basic biology, CRISPR based genome editing and genome engineering has numerous real-world applications, e.g. engineering plants that better provide fuel, food and industrial raw materials. Driven by advances in the CRISPR-toolbox for rapid, cheap, multiplex modification of genomes and breakthroughs in DNA synthesis technologies, the pace of progress enabled by these tools in the last 2 years has been breathtaking.
The 3rd International Conference “CRISPR & Plant Genome Editing” to be held in Vienna, Austria on July 8-9, 2022, will discuss the advances in CRISPR-CAS9 system and its application in genome editing and engineering. The case study and sessions will reveal the potential application of CRISPR and other Genome editing tools for plant biology and crop improvement. Special emphasis will be given on CRISPR system, addressing the concept, technology, challenges like off-target effects, efficiency improvement and delivery systems etc.
This two-day event will provide leading academy and industry scientists a platform to communicate recent advances in “CRISPR & Plant Genome Editing”, and an opportunity to establish multilateral collaboration.
The 3rd International Conference “CRISPR & Plant Genome Editing” will cover the following research topics:
- Genome Editing for Crop Improvement
- CRISPR In Plant Genome Editing & Engineering
- СRISPR In Plant Biology
- СRISPR Tools & Technology Development
- Genome Editing in Monocots
- Genome Editing in Dicots
- Genome Editing & Engineering: Regulatory Aspects
