General Information

Our fifth CRISPR and Beyond conference will provide a forum for biomedical researchers from academia and industry working on high throughput screening, genome engineering, and variant effect interpretation to discuss perturbations at scale to understand genomes.

This year’s meeting will highlight recent advances enabled by emerging technologies and models, including computational approaches and designing DNA for function. Discussions will focus on the recent discoveries in precision genome editing, coding and non-coding variation and genetic interactions. A panel discussion will probe how generative modelling and other applications of machine learning are shaping the present and future of the field, and impacting experimentation.


The programme will also include short oral presentations selected from abstracts, posters, poster pitches, discussion sessions and networking opportunities for a highly interactive meeting.

Deadline for submissions: 27 February 2024
