The promise of genome editing: Changing bioprocessing, manufacture and much, much more
Venue: Bradfield Centre, Cambridge Science Park
18 June 2018 (11.00-16.00)
In this workshop (co-sponsored by BioProNET and Horizon Discovery) we are bringing together expert opinion leaders from academia and industry to examine the likelihood of the expectations being translated to outcomes. Via short expert presentations and focused group discussions, the participants will examine how the potential of genome editing to change the manufacture of bio-based products (in terms of amount, quality, spectrum) may be enhanced and the practical consequences of such interventions from a commercial perspective. Topics to be covered include implications for the predictability and speed of manufacture of protein- and nucleic acid-based products and how the generation of new expression platforms may influence the design, production and downstream processing of emerging classes of bio-based products.
Confirmed speakers include:
Mark Fife (The Pirbright Institute)
Claus Kristensen (GlycoDisplay
Lorenz Mayr (GE Healthcare Life Sciences)
Nicola McCarthy (Horizon Discovery)
The workshop is free to attend and lunch and refreshments will be provided.
