2019 International Conference on Biotechnology and Bioengineering (9th ICBB 2019)

ICBB2019 aims to provide an innovative and comprehensive overview of biotechnology and bioengineering, a focus will be given to major research advances including: 1. Microbiology, virology, cytology and immunology; 2. Biological macromolecules, proteins and nucleic acids; 3. Biomaterials, biopolymers and bioenergy; 4. Biomedicine, biopharmaceuticals, pharmacology and toxicology; 5. Agricultural & food science and industrial biotechnology; 6. Applications in bioengineering, biomedical engineering & technology and other related fields. 

Novel nanoparticles deliver CRISPR gene editing tools into the cell with much higher efficiency

Researchers developed a biodegradable synthetic lipid nanoparticle (which more easily penetrates the cell) to deliver CRISPR/Cas9. The nanoparticles encapsulate messenger RNA (mRNA) encoding Cas9. and once the contents of the nanoparticles are released the cell’s protein-making machinery creates Cas9 from the mRNA template.
