CCP CRISPR Course 2020

27 - 29 April 2020        CCP, BIOCEV Center        Prague-Vestec, Czech Republic


The course is intended for researchers who wish to become acquainted with the genome browser Ensembl and acquire theoretical background for CRISPR-based genome editing. Participants will become familiar with guidelines for devising optimal gene targeting strategy, selection of gRNA and DNA template design.

Integral part of the course will be theoretical background and practical demonstration of state-of-the-art delivery methods into mouse zygotes. Participants will have the opportunity to learn the revolutionary method iGonad directly from its inventors. After the colurse, they should be familiar with all relevant steps in the process of mutant mouse generation - from design to production of gene-edited animals

Basic course program:

Day 1:       Ensembl Browser Workshop      first module

Day 2+3:   CRISPR gene editing course       second module


Target Group:

The course has been designed for participants with an intermediate knowledge of molecular biology. It is supported by the International Society for Transgenic Technologies (ISTT).

Each participant will have a chance to discuss his or her own individual gene-targeting project with top experts in the field.
