Dear all,

Registrations are open for the 2nd edition of the online course "Introduction to CRISPR for Ecology and Evolution Studies".

Dates: 14-18 October

Course website:

The course is intended for researchers interested in implementing the CRISPR-Cas9 tool in their own projects. There will be theoretical lectures and hands-on practical exercises using web-based tools, license-free software, and UNIX-based command line programs. Experience using command-line based programs will be advantageous, but not required. An introduction to UNIX commands will be provided.

At the end of this course, attendees will be in the position to:

  • Understand the fundamentals of the CRISPR-Cas9 genome-editing tool.
  • Design a reliable CRISPR-based gene knockout experiment.
  • Functionally investigate a gene of interest in a non-model species.
  • Design and evaluate species-specific guide RNAs (gRNAs).
  • Efficiently synthesize gRNA and assemble optimized Cas9/gRNA mixes.
  • Screen for CRISPR-derived mutants using a number of genotyping methods.
  • Design genotyping strategies according to project needs.
  • Analyze Cas9-induced genomic variants by Illumina deep sequencing.
  • Critically interpret the results from a CRISPR-based KO experiment
