Talking about CRISPR - Copenhagen Bioscience Cluster Seminar
Several CRISPR users will highlight the potential of CRISPR technique, followed by a talk of Virginijus Siksnys from the Institute of Biotechnology, Vilnius University. Virginijus was among the first to demonstrate programmable DNA cleavage by the Cas9 protein.
Co-organized by PhD student, Maya Friis Kjærgaard from the Semb group.
This afternoon seminar aims:
- To improve the visibility of CRISPR research in Denmark
- To establish a local network for knowledge sharing
- To speed up the process from generating ideas to testing by creating a CRISPR discussion forum
- To foster new collaborations, talent development and recruitment
There will be talks from several CRISPR users that will highlight the potential of this technique.
The last talk will be from Virginijus Siksnys from the Institute of Biotechnology, Vilnius University. Virginijus was among the first to demonstrate programmable DNA cleavage by the Cas9 protein.
After the last talk, all are invited to participate to a dinner reception on the 15th floor of the Maersk Tower to meet all the speakers.
