WHAT: CRISPR/Cas9 Technology – What It Can Do for Your Research
CRISPR/Cas9 technology has revolutionized basic research over the past 8 years. It has evolved in such a rapid manner that the applications of this genomic editing tool are becoming a backbone of basic research. A brief overview of the history of this technology will be provided and key components of current CRISPR/Cas9 systems will be introduced. Finally, the application of this tool to generate genetically-engineered mice and to engineer genomic loci in human iPS cells will be highlighted.
This presentation is intended for investigators who wish to take advantage of CRISPR/Cas9 technology as well as for the more experienced user interested in recent advances.
Dr. Mathias Pawlak performed his PhD thesis in the laboratory of Prof. Dr. Rudolf Jaenisch at the Whitehead Institute in the field of epigenetics, nuclear reprogramming and stem cells. He joined the laboratory of Prof. Dr. Vijay Kuchroo for postdoctoral studies in autoimmune diseases, in particular the implication of pathogenic T cells in multiple sclerosis and inflammatory bowel disease and auto-antibody producing B cells in neuromyelitis optica.
