Title: Strategies For Effective CRISPR-Mediated Gene Modification

Presented Monday, December 3, 2018

CRISPR genome editing-the ability to make specific changes at targeted genomic sites-has transformed research in biology and medicine, due to its precision, ease of use, and relatively low cost. CRISPR's many applications include gene knock out, gene tagging, correction of genetic defects, and gene activation. In this webinar, we discuss how to use GeneCopoeia’s CRISPR technology for efficient genome editing in mammalian cell lines.

Title: Harnessing CRISPR for Activation of Gene Expression

Presented Wednesday, November 14, 2018

CRISPR-Cas systems have been successfully re-purposed from bacterial adaptive immune mechanisms for the modification of genes. Most CRISPR-mediated gene modifications include permanently changing the genetic code for such applications as gene knockout, mutagenesis, and fusion tagging. However, CRISPR-Cas has also been adapted for stimulating gene transcription, without modifying coding sequences. In this webinar, we discuss how GeneCopoeia CRISPR products and services can help you get more from your transcriptional activation applications.

Title: Genome Editing: How Do I Use CRISPR?

Presented Wednesday, February 22, 2017

Genome Editing-the ability to make specific changes at targeted genomic sites-is fundamentally important to researchers in biology and medicine. CRISPR is a very widely-used method for modifying specific genome sites, and can be used for many applications, including gene knock out, transgene knock in, gene tagging, and correction of genetic defects. However, researchers are often unaware of some of the work required to identify their desired modification in their cell lines. In this webinar, we discuss what you need to do for CRISPR genome editing after you have obtained your reagents from GeneCopoeia, the so-called “Downstream work”.

Title: GeneCopoeia CRISPR Genome Editing Technology

Presented Wednesday, January 25, 2017

The ability to make specific changes at targeted genomic sites in complex organisms is fundamentally important to researchers in biology and medicine. Researchers have developed and refined chimeric DNA endonucleases, such as CRISPR-Cas9, to stimulate double strand breaks at defined genomic loci, allowing the ability to insert, delete, and replace genetic information at will. These tools can also be used without nucleases to induce or repress gene transcription. In this webinar, we discuss CRISPR and other genome editing technologies and the applications they make possible, and provide information on GeneCopoeia's powerful suite of genome editing products and services.

Title: Applications For CRISPR-Cas9 Stable Cell Lines

Presented Wednesday, March 22, 2017

The CRISPR-Cas9 system has become greatly popular for genome editing in recent years, due to its ease-of-design, efficiency, specificity, and relatively low cost. In mammalian cell culture systems, most genome editing is achieved using transient transfection or lentiviral transduction, which works well for routine, low-throughput applications. However, for other applications, it would be beneficial to have a system in which one component, namely the CRISPR-Cas9 nuclease, was stably integrated into the genome. In this webinar, we introduce GeneCopoeia’s suite of Cas9 stable cell lines, and discuss the great utility that these cell lines provide for genome editing applications.

Title: Safe Harbor Transgenesis in Human & Mouse Genome Editing

Presented Wednesday, April 19, 2017

Insertion of transgenes in mammalian chromosomes is an important approach for biomedical research and targeted gene therapy. Traditional lentiviral-mediated transgenesis is effective and straightforward, but its random integration can often be unstable and harm cells. "Safe Harbor" sites in human and mouse chromosomes have been employed recently as an alternative to random, viral-mediated integration because they support consistent, stable expression, and are not known to hamper cell fitness or growth. In this webinar, we will discuss the merits of Safe harbor transgenesis approaches, and how GeneCopoeia's CRISPR tools for Safe Harbor knock-in can greatly benefit your research.

Title: GeneCopoeia CRISPR sgRNA Libraries For Functional Genomics

Presented Wednesday, April 29, 2015

Biomedical researchers are enjoying a Renaissance in functional genomics, which aims to use a wealth of DNA sequence information—most notably, the complete sequence of the human genome—to determine the natural roles of the genes encoded by the genome. As a result, biochemical networks and pathways will be better understood, with the hope of leading to improved disease treatments. Researchers are turning increasingly to CRISPR (clustered, regularly interspaced, short palindromic repeats) for functional genomics studies.  Several groups recently adapted CRISPR for high-throughput knockout applications, by developing large-scale CRISPR sgRNA libraries. GeneCopoeia recently launched a number of smaller, pathway- and gene group-focused CRISPR sgRNA libraries, which offer several key advantages over the whole-genome libraries. In this 40 minute webinar, we discuss the merits and applications for CRISPR sgRNA libraries, how to use CRISPR sgRNA libraries, the advantages of using small, pathway- and gene group-focused libraries, and how GeneCopoeia can help you with your high-throughput CRISPR knockout studies.
