Conference sessions will present the latest research and foster discussion on:
  • What's new? Advances in genome engineering technologies
  • DNA repair and cellular responses
  • Beyond DNA: RNA and epigenome engineering
  • Disease modeling
  • Progress in clinical trials
  • In vivo delivery of genome engineering reagents
  • Applications in agriculture
The conference covers nine oral session, three poster session, and a career development session. The program includes “Meet the Experts” sessions for trainees and early-career scientists to meet with established experts in the field to garner career and scientific advice.
