International Hands-on Training on Genome Editing Technologies
October 14, 2019 @ 8:00 am - October 25, 2019 @ 5:00 pm
The International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) and Asia-Pacific Association of Agricultural Research Institutions (APAARI) under its programme on Asia Pacific Consortium on Agricultural Biotechnology and Bioresources (APCoAB) jointly announces the call for applications for its international hands-on training program on “Genome Editing Technologies”. ICRISAT is an International non-profit agricultural research institute with sate of the art facilities on agri-biotechnology research supporting innovation, development and applications of broad range of biotechnological solutions spreading across various domains from basic research to product translation. Under the aegis BioNcube, a BIRAC-BioNEST Ag-biotech incubator at ICRISAT and APCoAB programme of APAARI the training course is being organized during October 14 – 25, 2019 at ICRISAT, Patancheru, Hyderabad, India-502 324.
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 system.
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 completed application shouId be sent to Dr Pooja Bhatnagar-Mathur, Course coordinator, Email: firstname.lastname@example.org with copy to Dr Kiran K Sharma, E-mail: email@example.com and Dr Rishi Kumar Tyagi, E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
