Genomics Lite: Genetic alchemy

Our guest speaker for this session was Dr. Nneka Anyanwu, Head of Gene Editing at the Wellcome Sanger Institute, exploring how gene editing is transforming the genome.

In this Genomics Lite session, Nneka provided an overview of gene editing, taking us on a journey from the technology used to edit genomes, CRISPR-Cas9 and how this is used in large scale screens to exploring the use of gene editing in synthetic biology and the role of artificial intelligence in their work.
