CRISPR as a revolutionary technology

CRISPR/Cas for genome editing – today and tomorrow


16:00 - 17:30


Bern, Schweiz

Meeting place

Online (Zoom)

This webinar we will give you an overview about how CRISPR is being used and developed. In a first part we would like to introduce the technology itself to you. This part will cover questions like: What is CRISPR/Cas9 and what new features have been developed in the recent years? What will CRISPR be able to do in the future? In a second input we will give you a summary about the current state of patents on CRISPR and what this could tell us how the technology will be developed and used in the future.
