About Conference

The Department of Biological Sciences, School of Engineering and Sciences, SRM University-AP together with the Institute of Bioinformatics and Applied Biotechnology, Bengaluru, KA, are organizing a 3-day “National Conference on CRISPR/Cas: From Biology to Technology” (i-CRISPR2021) in Virtual Mode. The Conference is scheduled for November 27 – 29, 2021. Distinguished speakers from all over the nation will grace the conference with their thoughts, opinions and research in the field of CRISPR/Cas.

i-CRISPR2021 is a three-day conference made up of researchers, policy makers and industrial attendees. The goals of the conference are two-fold: (1) to build awareness of the diverse CRISPR/Cas-related research activities that are currently underway in India, and (2) create a platform for Indian researchers to discuss their work, exchange ideas, and network. i-CRISPR2021 will have eminent invited speakers working in the area of CRISPR/Cas from various academic and industries all across the nation including IGIB, NCBS, IITs, IISERs, IISc, UoH, ThermoFisher, Reliance Industries Limited, and other prominent institutions. The conference. The conference will have e-poster sessions and talks selected from abstracts.
