Genome Editing for Cell Factories

2-week experimental course

4.-15. June 2018

At the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Biosustainability (Kemitorvet 220, Kgs. Lyngby, Denmark)

The students will learn how to apply state-of-the-art synthetic biology tools (main focus on CRISPR techniques) for designing novel cell factories for production of bio-based chemicals and pharmaceuticals. 

The course is composed of theory lectures and computer exercises from 9-11 and laboratory project work 11-17. The students will choose one of the four experimental tracks, where they will carry out a smaller research project on engineering of: (1) Pseudomonas putida, (2) Saccharomyces cerevisiae, (3) Streptomycetes, or (4) Chinese Hamster Ovary cells (CHO).
