The Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics: EMBO Practical Course

Date: Jul 10, 2017


About EMBO Practical Course

The discovery of the molecular mechanisms of acquired bacterial immunity and the demonstration that the CRISPR/Cas system can be transplanted to practically any model organism unleashed an unprecedented explosion in genome engineering technology development. Within a few years the toolkit of techniques for editing and reprogramming the genome has vastly expanded and has enabled new types of experiments in complex vertebrate systems that were previously confined to bacterial and yeast models.

This EMBO Practical Course will provide a high quality hands on practical training in the most recent advances in mouse genome engineering.
