Collaborator of Mitalipov and Amato to speak on genome-wide target specificity of CRISPR base editors
Jin-Soo Kim, Ph.D., collaborated with Shoukhrat Mitalipov, Ph.D., and Paula Amato, M.D., on the groundbreaking discovery recently reported in Nature — the successful removal of a lethal genetic defect in human embryos.
The discovery and widespread development of methods to edit the human genome is a truly revolutionary advance in biology.
Kim, professor and director at the Center for Genome Engineering, Seoul National University, will discuss the genome-wide target specificity of CRISPR nucleases and deaminases, or base editors.
Light refreshments will be provided.
