Students learn the power of CRISPR genome editing in stem cells and its application in research.

Autumn term

The main idea of the course is to demonstrate the power of CRISPR genome editing in stem cells and its application in research.

DPBM-147 Mini-symposium: participation and pre-assignment 1 ECTS

DPBM-147 Practical course: active participation 1ECTS + DPBM-111 Journal club (participation and presentation) 2 ECTS


NB! The practical course DPBM-147 includes the DPBM-111 Genome Editing Technology Journal Club (2 ECTS) in 2019 (max. 10 participants). The participants are selected based on a motivation letter.
