Symposium: Genome Editing Technology: From Research to Industrial Application

Date: 10:00-17:00 (Saturday) September 10th, 2022
Osaka, Japan | HYBRID

The first announcement (July 07th, 2022)

Genome editing technology is attracting attention as a technology that will bring innovation to the life science field, and its use is spreading worldwide in various fields. In view of this situation, this symposium will introduce the latest development topics by those who are utilizing genome editing technology at the forefront of industrial applications. Furthermore, we have planned this international symposium in the hope that it will serve as an opportunity to build an international network for the industrial use of genome editing technology.
