    Presentation at Genome Editing and Trangenic Congress USA



    Boston, MA

    Stephanie will be presenting at the Genome Editing and Transgenic Congress USA in Boston, MA, on May 10, 2017 (time TBD). She plans to cover the following topics.

    • Strategy and results of optimization of Cas9 fusion proteins for CRISPR activation in cells and in vivo
    • Genome-scale design of single guide RNAs (sgRNAs) for CRISPR activation
    • Use of CRISPR activation in Drosophila for large-scale gene function discovery and disease modeling

    Harvard Med School Research Core Facilities Showcase

    3:30pm to 5:30pm


    TMEC Atrium on the Harvard Medical School campus

    The DRSC & TRiP will be represented at the HMS Research Cores Showcase. The event will be comprised of a poster session and reception. The event provides an opportunity for HMS students, postdocs, and faculty can get to know what offerings are available from facilities on the campus. If you are local to HMS, drop by to say hello or ask questions about our offerings in the area of cell-based screening, RNAi and CRISPR fly stocks, and bioinformatics.

    Functional Genomics for Conserved Gene Function Discovery (TAGC 2016)

    8:00am to 10:00am


    Orlando, FL

    Functional genomics permits gene function discovery at large scale. The power of the approach increases when related genes in multiple species are shown to have similar functions. We bring together experts in functional genomics in single-cell, invertebrate and vertebrate models to present their effective platforms, with an emphasis on cross-species studies (e.g. parallel screens in multiple species or screens in one system followed up in another). Attendees will learn about functional genomics and analysis workflows, and discuss with experts how our communities can collaborate to harness...
