Finally, full-day CRISPR workshop in Oulu!

CRISPR, the modern break-through genome editing tool, allows scientists to edit genomes with unprecedented precision, efficiency, and flexibility. Will it transform the field of molecular biology, or has this already happened? What are the bottlenecks in using this technology? Learn the basics and get familiar with several different applications. Talks will be given by both local scientists and invited experts in the field. We wish everyone welcome to this interactive workshop!

About the poster presentations:
We invite all participants who already have experience about CRISPR or who have planned to use it, to present their application in a poster. Posters will be visible during the whole day to be viewed and discussed by the participants during the breaks. If you wish to present a poster, please indicate it upon registration. We will confirm your participation with poster after the registration is closed.
