Dear all,

we would like to invite you for the 2nd Programmable nucleases
(CRISPR/Cas9) Transgenesis Course at CCP in BIOCEV, Vestec in April 2017.

This course, jointly provided by the Czech Centre for Phenogenomics and
Phenomin/ICS Strasbourg, both members of INFRAFRONTIER, is designed to
give practical, hands-on training in current technologies and methods
employing CRISPR/Cas9-mediated genome manipulations in the generation of
mice mutants. Participants will gain theoretical and practical knowledge
from our expert instructors, have ample opportunity for discussion and can
bring their own targeting projects to work on during the bioinformatics
session. The course has been designed for participants with an
intermediate knowledge of molecular biology.

Course highlights

  • Design targeting strategy for your project of interest
  • Apply the targeting tools and validate CRISPR activity
  • Deliver the editing tools to cell lines and zygotes
  • Identify CRISPR induced genomic modifications

Date: April 3-7, 2017

Place: Czech Centre for Phenogenomis, Vestec, Czech Republic

Application deadline: 15th February 2017 (results posted 20th February 2017)

Participants: A maximum of 15 participants including 2 scholarships.

Course fee: 980 € for participants from academic institutions and
