Conferences & Workshops
Pooled CRISPR based screens have become an important tool for functional genomics. Multiple laboratories in La Jolla are initiating screens and developing standard operating procedures for screen design, execution and analysis. The goal of the workshop is to provide attendees with the tools and knowledge to design, execute and analyze screens leading to reliable, reproducible and sensitive results.
Notably, the workshop will include a hands-on analysis session, which will require attendees to bring their own laptops, with R-Studio installed.
