Canada SynBio Conference is going virtual in 2020

Ontario Genomics is pleased to announce that our annual Canada Synbio Conference is going virtual! This national conference, now in its third year, will explore emerging themes in engineering biology through a series of engaging and interactive webinars.

We are thrilled to partner with the Gairdner Foundation to bring you one of their Global Perspectives Panels as our first webinar of this series. "Editing our Economic Future: The Power of CRISPR will showcase a conversation between Gairdner Foundation laureates and leading Canadian researchers on using the opportunities and applications of gene editing, specifically by using CRISPR/Cas9, to transform multiple sectors, from therapeutics to diagnostics, agriculture, and low carbon manufacturing, all of which will have a profound impact on our economy.

This discussion with centre on the development of these molecular tools and their applications, and potential challenges to adoption. In addition, Canadian researchers will speak about how they are applying gene editing to address problems like cancer treatment and fungal resistance for crops.
