The Evolution of CRISPR/Cas9 in Mouse Model Generation: From Constitutive Gene Knock-out to Full Gene Replacement, New Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - September 06, 2016) - Jochen Welcker, Director of Molecular Biology and Scientific Development at Taconic Biosciences will present Taconic's experience in using CRISPR/Cas9 to edit the mouse genome and how the use of this technology has changed the way mouse models are being generated. He will discuss specific examples illustrating different approaches for the application of this technology, and highlight challenges and advantages of this innovative genome editing tool. The live event will take place on Thursday, September 22, 2016 at 11am EDT (4pm BST/UK).

Since its introduction to the scientific community in 2012, the CRISPR/Cas9 technology has attracted immense interest for the generation of genetically modified mouse models with the promise of decreasing timelines and costs.

Key takeaway points:

  • An understanding of the fundamental mechanisms of how CRISPR/Cas9 is used to generate genetically engineered models
  • Different approaches exploiting the power of CRISPR/Cas9-mediated genome editing
  • Advantages, challenges and current limitations of CRISPR/Cas9
