  • History of trangenics – Doug Strathdee, Beatson Institute for Cancer Research, Glasgow
  • Advances in CRISPR design – Katarina Boroviak, Welcome Sanger Institute, Hinxton
  • Novel approaches to CRISPR delivery – Ben Davies, Welcome Centre for Human Genetics, Oxford
  • Quirks of Genotyping: allele verification and founder characterisation – Gemma Codner, Medical Research Council, Harwell
  • Application of ethics & the challenges of breeding with CRISPR founders – Hannah Wardle-Jones, Welcome Sanger Institute, Hinxton

Each session opens with an expert speaker before a series of short presentations from attending delegates on hot topics and refinements in the field. There will be plenty of opportunity for networking with others in the field and discussion throughout the meeting.
