Genome Engineering 2019 Conference
May 16-17-18, 2019 — Iowa State University at Ames, Iowa
Genome engineering has hit the streets. The plethora of new editing tools is propelling the field into the next genomic revolution. What are the new technologies? What will we make with them? How are the innovations impacting society and our individual lives? The Genome Writers Guild's annual conference highlights the fast pace of genomic engineering. Topics at the conference focus on recent research, tangible skills for the laboratory, and the challenges of social responsibility we all share.
The Genome Writers Guild planning committee is working behind the scenes to line up presentations from leaders in the field. We are honored to have as our science communication keynote speaker New York Times award-winning science journalist Carl Zimmer. And our science keynote speaker Dr. Takashi Yamamoto, Professor at Hiroshima University's Graduate School of Science, and president of the Japanese Society for Genome Editing.
