Introduction to CRISPR-Cas9 Genome Editing - Design to Analysis (4 days)
COVID-19 Update: We are actively monitoring the situation with COVID-19. For any courses rescheduled due to travel restrictions we are happy to transfer your registration to a future course date. Please contact email@example.com with any questions.
Tools like CRISPR-Cas9 have dramatically changed our ability to precisely edit DNA sequence, enabling exciting and innovative new applications in cell engineering. This course will walk you through basic CRISPR DNA editing workflows in mammalian cells, from design and synthesis of target-specific guide RNAs to analysis of gene editing efficiency and sequence results.
Who Should Attend?
This is an intermediate-level laboratory skills course. Although it is an introduction to CRISPR-Cas9 and does not require any background knowledge of genome editing mechanisms or the CRISPR workflow, it is designed for life science professionals who have prior experience in basic molecular biology laboratory techniques, including PCR, and basic mammalian cell culturing techniques.
Also note this course is focused on mammalian cell applications, and there will be limited information on more advanced topics like screening and Cas9 variants. The concepts are widely applicable, but our ability to specifically support researchers working with other species or applications is limited.
Classroom lectures and discussions include:
Hands-on laboratory sessions include:
You will receive a detailed course guide containing all lecture materials, laboratory protocols, troubleshooting tips and more to help you get started right away when you return to your lab.
Registrations are limited to 6 attendees per class to ensure low student-instructor ratios and a rich educational experience.
Tuition includes all course materials, laboratory reagents, and consumables. Snacks and lunch are also provided each day. Travel, accommodation, and other incidental expenses relating to the training are the responsibility of the attendee.
The price quoted on the website is in local currency for the location where the training will take place. Training prices will vary between countries and currency and are quoted as a guide only. Invoices will be completed in the local currency for each customer based on location. A quotation can be raised upon request.

Cancellation policy: Thermo Fisher Scientific reserves the right to cancel or reschedule a course up to 10 working days prior to the listed course start date. For more information, please refer to the Terms and Conditions below.
Tours and Workshops
Design strategies for successful gene editing ( 1 day)
Tools like CRISPR-Cas9 have dramatically changed our ability to precisely edit DNA sequence, enabling exciting and innovative new applications in cell engineering. This interactive workshop will focus on basic design strategies for target-specific guide RNAs (gRNA) and homology-directed repair (HDR) templates to be used in gene editing experiments. A short overview will also be presented on delivery and detection methods that can be considered for this application.
Who Should Attend?
This is an introductory level workshop and does not require any background knowledge of genome editing mechanisms or the CRISPR workflow; it is designed for life science professionals who have prior experience in basic molecular biology laboratory techniques, including PCR, and basic mammalian cell culturing techniques.
The workshop will focus on the following areas:
You will receive a course guide containing all lecture materials, case study examples, troubleshooting tips and more to help you get started right away when you return to your lab.
Tuition includes workshop materials. Lunch and snacks are also provided during the day. Travel, accommodation, and other incidental expenses relating to the training are the responsibility of the attendee.

Microarray transcriptome analysis training ( 1 day)
This workshop focuses on the microarray expression analysis procedure and includes the critical steps of primary and secondary analysis as well as validation of the generated results. Learn about important considerations while planning your microarray study. You will also see how to assess data quality, identify differentially expressed genes and alternative splicing events as well as how to generate mRNA-miRNA interaction networks using our latest version of Transcriptome Analysis Console (TAC) software.
The course is intended for existing users and potentially new users of expression microarrays who want to obtain more in depth understanding of microarray expression experiments and its analysis, both at gene level and exon level analysis for coding and non-coding RNA.
Optional: Would you like to hear more about the newest generation of microarrays?
Who should attend:
This course is intended for those who use or plan to use our expression microarrays and for those who would like to get a deeper knowledge on the gene expression analysis workflow.
* Tuition includes training materials, lunch and refreshments. The course fee may be redeemed against products using a special promotion provided after the training. You will receive a confirmation as well as an invoice, which should be settled before the course starts.
For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
