Pre-meeting course

CRISPR-Cas9 Genome Editing Technology in Plasmodium falciparum by Dr. Marcus Lee of Sanger Institute

Genome editing CRISPR-Cas9 technology is revolutionizing research in every biological field. It has become a powerful tool in Tropical Medicine with several applications in seminal papers during the last two years. The course will cover the principle of CRISPR-Cas9 and its application in parasitic protozoa. The session will include hands-on guide design and molecular biology exercises. This practical session will be based on CRISPR molecular toolkits in Plasmodium falciparum, but it will lay the foundation for other experimental systems. More info…
