The Genome Engineering field has been revolutionized by CRISPR technologies, resulting in rapid, affordable and multiplex editing of genomes.

The Genome Engineering field has been revolutionized by CRISPR technologies, resulting in rapid, affordable and multiplex editing of genomes. Moreover, the number of CRISPR applications is continuously increasing. Next to this, progress in the Synthetic Biology field has been accelerated by recent developments in DNA synthesis and assembly technologies, and the expansion of the genetic code.

After three successful editions (organized in Sept 2013, January 2016 and January 2018) featuring each time ~300 attendees, we hope to further increase the impact of our meeting in this field. The conference will cover the following topics:

  • Tissue engineering
  • Bionanomaterials
  • Direct evolution of pathways
  • Protein design
  • CRISPR (applications)
  • Single Cell (meets CRISPR)
  • DNA Synthesis
  • Truly genome engineering

One of the main goals of the VIB Conference Series is to provide the possibility for networking and collaboration
