Think Big, Screen Once: Genome Scale Editing with Custom CRISPR Libraries
CRISPR genome editing has gained a lot of attention in the last few years due to the efficiency and specificity by which it is able to introduce changes to the genome. So Front Line Genomics are very excited to be bringing you our latest webinar, in partnership with Twist Bioscience, that will take an in depth look at how CRISPR can be harnessed to edit DNA on a grand scale.
Join us on September 14 2016 at 9am PDT (11am CDT, 12pm EDT, 5pm BST) for “Think Big, Screen Once: Genome Scale Editing with Custom CRISPR Libraries”.
What’s the webinar about?
This webinar will provide an overview on CRISPR library design techniques as well as discuss the impact of high quality DNA synthesis on enabling accurate editing. Specific examples of how these libraries are used in translational research will be provided to highlight the potential applications towards development of novel molecular therapeutics.
