- Applications of gene editing
- Transgenic and non-transgenic methods for gene editing in plants
- In workshop design of guide RNAs, donor templates, and constructs for knockouts, allelic replacement, and multiplexing in both species with sequenced genomes and those without
- Ways to test guide RNA effectiveness
- Screening methods for validating edits
Participants should bring:
