Science: Disrupt London Sessions – Disrupting the Lab

Science: Disrupt is a podcast, editorial, and events community organization about the innovators, iconoclasts, and entrepreneurs intent on creating change in science. They’ve recently spoken about health tech, research environments, open science, maths education, science startups and basic science funding. At Science: Disrupt’s next event on the Dec. 6 they’ll be covering automation, collaborative lab spaces, portable laboratories, and what investors look for in science software startups. Sign up is free.


Genome Editing with CRISPR-Cas9

Want to learn how to do hands-on genome editing? This is an intensive laboratory class with limited space. Class size is limited to 10 slots. In this class you will: Learn how to culture and work with Saccharomyces cerevisciae (brewers yeast). Build two CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing systems, one for gene deletion (target the ADE2 gene in the adenine biosynthesis pathway or use a guide RNA of your own design) and another for inserting the gene for a fluorescent protein. And transform yeast cells with the plasmids and confirm the results by DNA sequence analysis.

Prerequisites: You must have taken the CRISPR workshop at Genspace. You must be familiar with molecular biology lab techniques such as pipetting, gel electrophoresis, use of restriction enzymes and PCR (Genspace Biotech Crash Course, Biohacker Boot Camp or equivalent lab experience)
