“ABSA Webinar: Gene Editing, CRISPR, and Gene Drives: Biosafety Considerations”

Event Description:  Gene Editing, CRISPR, and Gene Drives: Biosafety Considerations is intended to provide an overview of biosafety considerations surrounding the use of gene editing tools, such as TALENS, zinc fingers, and CRISPR/Cas9 in research laboratories. The webinar will cover an introduction to these editing tools, current biosafety considerations and risk assessment strategies, and regulatory considerations. Additionally, this course will introduce the topic of gene drives: when is a gene drive created, what are the risks and when a consultation with a gene drive expert is needed.

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS:  This webinar requires pre-registration by emailing molinae@fiu.edu.
