At Genome Engineering emerging and established genome editing technologies, their discovery, development and application in key organisms will be discussed. Most notably, CRISPR/Cas9 and its therapeutic potential, but also including more specialised genome engineering tools and their future industrial applications.

The Genome Engineering track will run along side Personalized Medicine and its Impact in the Clinic in the Convention Centre adjacent to the
BIOTECHNICA/LABVOLUTION exhibition. Each track runs for two days and is broken down into four sessions. Delegates have the option to attend all tracks, single tracks, single days of a single track, or single sessions from 7-8 October 2015. In addition, all Genome Engineering and Personalized Medicine and its Impact in the Clinic delegates will also receive free access to the BIOTECHNICA/LABVOLUTION exhibition and the ELA Advances in LabAutomation and Robotics conference.

With over 500 exhibitors and 12,000 visitors expected to attend BIOTECHNICA/LABVOLUTION, this will be a must attend meeting for all biotech researchers, developers and manufacturers. An ideal environment for facilitating talks between pharma, biotech, academic & institutional research, solution providers and industry stakeholders.
