Genome Engineering: The CRISPR-Cas Revolution

  December 27, 2017  

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, Cold Spring Harbor, New York
August 22 - 25, 2018

The specific goal for this meeting is to foster fruitful and creative interactions between researchers interested in applying these systems to genome engineering and related advances in a wide variety of organisms, together with scientists studying the basic biology of CRISPR-Cas and related bacterial defense systems.
This meeting will consist of six oral sessions plus one poster session; speakers will be invited as well as selected from submitted abstracts.

  • DNA Damage
  • Disease Correction
  • CRISPR Tools
  • CRISPR Applications / Screening
  • Gene Drive
  • Plant / Agriculture
  • CRISPR Biology / Function
Abstracts should contain interesting and exciting material and must be submitted electronically by the abstract deadline. Selection of material for oral and poster presentation will be made by the organizers and individual session chairs. The status (talk/poster) of abstracts will be posted on our web site as soon as decisions have been made.
