The goal of the workshop is to teach you how to design and execute genome engineering using CRISPR/Cas9. The focus will be on hands on training. We will provide a series of theoretical lectures, followed by hands on practice exercises and design of your own targets. You should therefore bring a laptop computer, and have a genome engineering target in mind. Topics that will be discussed include:
Wed March 16
2 pm – 5 pm Arrival and introductory lectures
Thu March 17
9:00 – 12:00 Lectures and practice exercises.
13:30 – 16:00 Design of your own engineering target
Fri March 18
9:00 – 12:00 Feedback, follow up on design problems, wrapup.
12:00 Lunch followed by departure
The schedule is not final and we will try to include actual practical demonstrations of injection procedures and techniques.
The workshop will be held at Utrecht University, The Netherlands. Utrecht is reached easily by a 30 min train ride from Schiphol International Airport. You will stay at the Malie Hotel, which is near the city center and a short 10 min bus ride from the University Campus.
Total costs for the meeting are € 240,- . This includes 2 nights stay (double occupancy), 2x breakfast, 2x lunch, and 2x dinner. COST allows a maximum travel allowance of € 350,- for this workshop.
There is a limit of 32 participants. To register, please do the following:
The COST username is important for you to get reimbursed. If you do not have one yet, create an account here. If you can’t access the COST website, this is because they are on some sort of blacklist and your university may block access. You can try from home instead.
