CRISPR genome editing in mammalian cells is challenging. Success hinges on efficiency and specificity—improving these metrics will save time and resources and enhance your success rate. Join us on August 20 to learn about our range of genome editing research projects, including our custom guide RNA and library capabilities, new custom-targeted nucleases, improved methods for mediating homology-directed repair (HDR), and a high throughput workflow for detecting off-target effects.

During the workshop, you will learn about:

  • Our latest developments and customizations for guide RNAs, including pegRNAs and CRISPR libraries and our newest CRISPR nucleases with fluorescently labeled Cas9 variants.
  • Improved design tools, enhancing reagents, and analysis tools used to efficiently generate SNPs and large knock-ins.
  • Simplified methods for high-throughput detection and analysis of CRISPR-induced off-target effects, including a demonstration of our new, biologically informed CRISPR NGS analysis pipeline, CRISPAltRations.
