The discovery of the CRISPR/Cas9 system has led to a revolution in genome editing technology. The ease of gene targeting and manipulation with this approach and its derivatives have unlocked a plethora of previously unimaginable experimental areas within all disciplines of biomedical research. In this webinar, we will hear from experts in the field about the most cutting-edge applications of CRISPR/Cas9 targeting in the study of normal and malignant hematopoiesis, and how these approaches might one day benefit a wide range of patients with blood disorders.
Please join us on 25 October for what will no doubt be an excellent webinar which we hope will educate you more on this topic with possible implications for your own research.
