CRISPR Screening Workshop
Thursday, October 20 from 1 - 6:30pm
Sanford Consortium for Regenerative Medicine

Organizers: Olivier Harismendy, Kristen Jepsen and SDCSB
Sponsors: Illumina, Twist Bioscience and Agilent Technologies*
(*) Agilent Custom and a GECKO (Mm or Hs) SureGuide CRISPR Library (value: ~$5,500 each) will be awarded to two workshop participants (procedure TBD)


Pooled CRISPR based screens have become an important tool for functional genomics. Multiple laboratories in La Jolla are initiating screens and developing standard operating procedures for screen design, execution and analysis. The goal of the workshop is to provide attendees with the tools and knowledge to design, execute and analyze screens leading to reliable, reproducible and sensitive results.

Learning goals
·       Design, execute and analyze a pooled CRISPR-based screen
·       Understand the limitations of CRISPR-based screens
·       Troubleshoot experimental steps
·       Control the quality of the reagents, libraries and resulting datasets
·       Identify significantly altered genes and pathways
·       Locate literature and online resources
·       Establish a network of users interested in CRISPR-screens and applications

Notably, the workshop will include a hands-on analysis session, which will require attendees to bring their own laptops, with Docker<https://docs.docker.com/engine/installation/> installed as well as a shell functionality (Terminal on MacOS or CYGWIN on Windows).

Space is limited. Please visit here<https://www.eventbrite.com/e/crispr-screening-workshop-registration-27557009758> to register.

No Show Policy
While we do not charge a fee to attend this event, these and our other events would be unsustainable unless those unable to attend cancelled their reservations no later than 2 days before the event. A no-show can limit your ability to book our events in the future. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Free parking at the Sanford Consortium’s east lot will be provided on a first-come, first-serve basis. Hourly parking is also available for purchase at the ticket booth. There is also additional parking near the Torrey Pines Glider port, which is within walking distance.  The UCSD Shuttle Route has two drop off locations within walking distance to the Sanford Consortium.
