CRISPR: New Frontiers

CRISPR: New Frontiers

Monday, February 24, 2020, 9:30 AM - 6:00 PM

The New York Academy of Sciences, 7 World Trade Center, 250 Greenwich St Fl 40, New York

Presented By

CRISPR Discussion Group

The New York Academy of Sciences

 

The discovery of CRISPR–Cas systems and their development for gene-editing applications have revolutionized biomedical science. These systems are pervasive within the genomes of bacteria and archaea, where they provide adaptive immunity by targeting foreign nucleic acids for degradation. An incredibly diverse and rapidly growing set of CRISPR systems have been identified, and recent work harnessing them to target and modify specific RNA and DNA sequences has enabled a multitude of applications, such as genome editing, transcriptional modulation, forward genetic screens, lineage tracing, and more.

The CRISPR: New Frontiers meeting will bring together researchers uncovering the cellular, molecular, and biochemical pathways of CRISPR-associated proteins, DNA repair pathways, and applications in diverse organisms, including for human health and disease biology.
