Plant Genome Editing & Genome Engineering
The International Conference “Plant Genome Editing & Genome Engineering” will be hold on July 3-4, 2017 in Vienna, Austria. This congress will discuss the advances in technologies and methods of applications of the genome editing tools as well as enome editing and engineering (mainly CRISPR/Cas9, TALENs, ZNFs & AAVs in plants). Special emphasis on CRISPR system addressing the concept, technology, challenges like off-target effects, efficiency improvement and delivery systems etc… The case study and sessions will reveal the potential application of Genome editing tools plant biology and crop improvement.
Nowadays, Genome Editing & Genome Engineering are revolutionizing Human Health and Plant Biotechnology that seek to develop new technologies for the precise manipulation of genomes in cells & in vivo. In addition to its use for advancing our understanding of basic biology, genome engineering has numerous real-world applications (food & industrial raw materials, engineering plants that better provide fuel, etc…). Driven by advances in the CRISPR-toolbox for rapid, cheap, multiplex modification of genomes and breakthroughs in DNA synthesis technologies, the pace of progress enabled by these tools in the last two years has been breathtaking.
This two-day event will provide leading scientists a platform to communicate recent advances in “Plant Genome Editing & Genome Engineering” and an opportunity to establish multilateral collaborations.
This congress “Plant Genome Editing & Genome Engineering” will cover the following research topics:
• CRISPR-CAS9: Revolution in Genome Editing & Engineering
• Genome Editing & Engineering for Crop Improvement
• Precision Genome Editing by TALEN, ZFN and others
• Applications of CRISPR-CAS9 in Plants
• Current CRISPR-CAS9 Technologies and Design
• Genome Editing & Engineering: Regulatory Aspects
