CRISPR community! Join us for the inaugural CRISPR conference!



CRISPR has been the belle of the scientific research ball for over a decade. While there are many other gene editing methods (TALENS, zinc fingers, meganucleases…), none have been hailed as so quick and easy as CRISPR-Cas9. With its increased adoption and integration in research labs, CRISPR gene editing has gained importance as a research tool in drug discovery, screening, and therapeutic development.

While this exciting field has taken off in wide-reaching disciplines, it does face challenges and limitations, some of which are only recently discovered. LabRoots is excited to invite you to learn more about CRISPR, its applications, new trends, obstacles, and innovations at the First Annual CRISPR Virtual Event! Experts will share case studies and experiences regarding best practices to guide RNA design, effects associated with CRISPR/Cas and address appropriate alternatives that are currently being developed, discussing topics including CRISPR-Cas Immunity, Agricultural Engineering, Clinical Applications, and Functional Genomics/Bioinformatics.

As with all LabRoots conferences, this complimentary conference offers a fantastic opportunity to benefit from interacting with a global community of like-minded colleagues and discussing the distinctions and abilities of CRISPR-based editing, next-gen editing tools, precision in gene editing and using CRISPR for drug discovery. As our first-ever annual event on CRISPR, we aim to further the conversation of cannabis sciences and analytical research.


Speakers for the conference are experts in the field, recognizing the potential of CRISPR beyond what current techniques have accomplished.
