CROPS 2019

This meeting will bring together researchers applying genomic based techniques to crop improvement and plant molecular breeding experts, along with traditional breeders who are interested in applying these techniques within their crops of interest.

The Biology of Genomes

The 2019 meeting will address DNA sequence variation and its role in molecular evolution, population genetics and complex diseases, comparative genomics, large-scale studies of gene and protein expression, and genomic approaches to ecological systems. Both technologies and applications will be emphasized. In addition there will be a special session on the ethical, legal and social implications of genome research.

Working with Pathogen Genomes

This five-day computational course aims to give molecular microbiologists working with bacterial and eukaryotic pathogens a working knowledge of genomic analysis. The course  will take the form of a series of modules covering the fundamental aspects of DNA sequence analysis and exploitation.

Genome Engineering: From Mechanisms to Therapies

The goal of this Keystone Symposia conference is to bring together those developing and studying genome engineering tools with groups who are applying them to build new disease models, identify disease mechanisms and drug targets, and develop cell-based therapeutics and genetic medicines. In addition to covering engineering of human and animal cells, this conference will also highlight the emerging field of genome engineering to identify new anti-microbial and anti-viral drugs and applications toward next-generation antibiotics.
