2nd Annual Genome Editing USA Congress will be held on 10 – 11 May 2018 in Boston. Co-located with Transgenic Technologies as well as Synthetic Biology Congresses, the events bring together over 300 senior level attendees from academia, research institutes and pharma companies.


Over 20 presentations dedicated to genome editing technologies and the applications of genome editing in a range of therapeutic areas, including CNS disease, oncology and genetic disorders. We will also be addressing the key updates in drug discovery and development, including bioinformatics and target identification. Over the two days the event will be split into 3 interactive streams:
