Monthly panel discussion, this week “Gene Editing”
It has been an eventful year for CRISPR gene editing technology. Come join our expert biologist panelists for a discussion of the year in genome modification. After a brief overview of the technology, we will discuss some of the highlight gene edits and their purpose, the end of the patent battle between Broad and UC Berkeley, European ruling on regulations of genetically modified crops, and on gene editing the human germline. Expect an informative and lively discussion of what’s new including the ethics and potential of the technology.
