CRISPR/Cas for genome editing – today and tomorrow
The CRISPR/Cas technology has revolutionized the field of genome editing. The technology has been widely adopted in research and is leading to the development of a wide range of applications. But how do we deal with new technologies like CRISPR as a society? Is CRISPR the new golden standard in somatic gene therapy? How can CRISPR contribute to agriculture and food production? And who will have the right to use the technology in the future? Come and join the conversation with scientists in the field in our webinars on "CRISPR/Cas for genome editing – today and tomorrow"
Participation in the webinars is free of charge, but registration is required. Please note that a separate registration is necessary for each of the four webinars.
The webinars will be held in English with the option to ask questions in German and French.
The webinar series is organized by the Forum for Genetic Research with the support of the Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN).
