About the course

Gene editing, a new breeding technique (NBT), is at the core of new-age agricultural innovations available to breeders today enabling very efficient and precise trait generation and selection without any adverse impact on the native phenotypes. These tools will also facilitate the speed of genetic gains and advancing research in delivery of products that enable “disruptive reduction” in the input costs to the farmer and “exponential gains” in the nutrition and yield.

Gene editing technologies have revolutionized the process of making DNA-level changes and the implication of this technology reaches far beyond standard molecular biology applications. Hands-on training program on “CRISPR/Cas9 Gene Editing technologies in plants” is a comprehensive training program ideal for researchers who are looking for a balanced theoretical and hands-on introduction to gene editing. The training program includes both theory and hands on practicals for better understanding the various components and stages of gene editing.

The training will help to learn the basic gene editing workflows, from design and synthesis of target-specific guide RNAs (gRNAs), delivery of gRNAs in plant cells, detection, and analysis of gene editing efficiencies. This is a great opportunity to interact and benefit from the expertise of our scientists and collaborators, as they help you design your first gene editing experiment. We are confident that by the end of the workshop, participants will be able to design their own experimental workflows.
BioNcube, a BIRAC-BioNEST Ag-biotech incubator of International Crops Research Institute for the Semi- Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) call applications for a hands-on training program on “CRISPR/Cas9 Gene Editing technologies in plants”. ICRISAT is an International non-profit agricultural research institute with state-of-the-art facilities for Agri-biotechnology research and product translation. The training course is being organized from October 10-14th at ICRISAT, Patancheru, Hyderabad, India-502 324.

Resource persons/trainers
Resource persons for this course would be from ICRISAT. Additional faculty will be drawn from National and International Research organizations.

Course fees
• INR 10,000 for Students/ Postdoc
• INR 15,000 for Scientist/Faculty
• INR 50,000 for Industry Persons

Course language
All course notes and lectures will be in English. Therefore, participants should have a good knowledge of English and of the appropriate technical terms of Gene editing technology.

The venue for the training program is Platform for Translational Research on Transgenic Crops (PTTC) building, ICRISAT Campus, Patancheru, Hyderabad.
More information
Additional information on the course will be provided to all the participants who are selected for admission to the course.

Applications are invited from researchers who are familiar with basic molecular and cell biology techniques and want to learn genome editing applications in agriculture using the most recent and advanced CRISPR systems. While previous experience in genome editing is not required, it is expected that the participants have fundamental knowledge and working experience on molecular biology and transformation tools. The application can be accessed from the following link or format provided in the brochure. https://forms.office.com/r/bp638xsXTb The completed application should be submitted through he link or sent to bioncube@cgiar.org with cc to wricha.tyagi@cgiar.org; p.sudhakarreddy@cgiar.org and k.yogendra@cgiar.org

The due date for applications is 28 September 2022


The participants will be accommodated in the Guest House/Hotel during the course of the training. The cost of any additional stay (beyond the dates of training) would be at trainees own expense. Information on extended stay needs to be given in advance.
