BIOL 055 | Genome Editing with CRISPR

July 27, 2020 to July 31, 2020

ONLINE

Registration occurs on a firstcome, firstserved basis. The deadline for registration is one week before the first day of the course. If you are unable to register before the deadline, please email: registrar@faes.org or call 301-496-7977 for space availability. 

NIH Fellows or NIH community members being sponsored by their lab and awaiting payment authorization can tentatively hold a seat using the “Reserve A Seat” option. FAES must receive payment within 7 business days after reserving a seat or 3 business days before the start of the workshop, which ever comes first. If payment is not received in this time frame, your reservation will be canceled.

Genome engineering provides the ability to manipulate gene expression in a variety of cell types and animal models. This course will provide an overview of the current major genome engineering platforms and cover CRISPR genome editing technology in depth.

The first part of the course will focus on the general principles of genome editing technology including design, choice of format, delivery, efficiency, specificity, clonal isolation, genotyping, and validation. The second part of the course will address different applications including genome editing in mice, zebrafish, and induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells, disease modeling, generation of reporter lines, and high throughput approaches. We will discuss strategies to make CRISPR gene editing more efficient, flexible, and specific. We will explore recent advances in the CRISPR field including base editors and epigenome editing. We will also examine sequencing and quality control considerations for genome editing projects. Hands-on training on in-silico tools and carefully designed team projects will accompany the lecture material to provide practical training in design, assembly, transfection, and detection/evaluation steps of a typical genome editing workflow. 

Discussion Topics
General Principles of Genome Engineering; DNA Repair Mechanisms; CRISPR-mediated Gene Modulation, Epigenome Editing, Targeted Integration, Genome Editing Workflow, Gene Correction in iPSCs; Targeted Mutagenesis in Zebrafish; CRISPR Genome Engineering in ES Cells and Embryos for Mouse Model Generation; Developing Reporter Lines; Sequencing and Quality Control Considerations.

Class size will be limited to 32

Credit
Each participant will receive Continuing Education Units (CEUs) based on the number of contact hours. Upon completion of the course each participant will receive a certificate, showing completion of the workshop and CEU credits.  For a 3-day workshop, a participant receives 2.1 CEUs.  For a 4-day workshop, a participant receives 2.8 CEUs.  For a 5-day workshop, a participant receives 3.5 CEUs.
