You are cordially invited to participate in the third meeting on Genome Engineering: The CRISPR-Cas Revolution at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. The meeting will begin with lunch and the first session at 2pm in the afternoon of Friday July 21st, and will conclude with an afternoon session and the meeting banquet on Sunday, July 23, 2017 (with departure on Monday morning).

The specific goal for this meeting is to foster fruitful and creative interactions between researchers interested in applying these systems to genome engineering and related advances in a wide variety of organisms, together with scientists studying the basic biology of CRISPR-Cas and related bacterial defense systems. The pre-meeting workshop will focus on technical aspects of genome engineering, including in various model organisms specific sessions led by experts.

This meeting will consist of six oral sessions plus one poster session; speakers will be invited as well as selected from submitted abstracts.

Abstracts should contain interesting and exciting material and must be submitted electronically by the abstract deadline. Selection of material for oral and poster presentation will be made by the organizers and individual session chairs. Status (talk/poster) of abstracts will be posted on our web site as soon as decisions have been made by the organizers.

We are eager to have as many young people as possible attend since they are likely to benefit most from this meeting. We have applied for funds from government and industry to partially support graduate students and postdocs. Apply in writing to Val Pakaluk stating need for financial support - preference is given to those submitting abstracts.



We look forward to seeing you at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in July 2017.
