CRISPR Functional Genomics Symposium

Explore entire pathways, from gene to phenotype

June 28 - July 1, 2021


Though unraveling gene function within pathways and discovering drug targets that impact phenotypes has been challenging, innovative single cell CRISPR screens are now enabling researchers to discover novel insights into these gene pathways. Explore what’s possible with scalable, high resolution functional genomic screens at the CRISPR Functional Genomics Symposium, sponsored by 10x Genomics and MilliporeSigma.

Hear from leading scientists using single cell CRISPR screens to characterize the genes and non-coding regulatory elements involved in cell fate determination, cancer and neurodevelopmental disease risk, and therapeutic response and resistance. Register today to watch the recordings.
