#CRISPR / gene editing featured at Festival of Genomics Nov. 3-5 in San Mateo. #genomicsfest

I will be participating in a CRISPR mouse editing workshop next week (Nov. 3) at The Festival of Genomics, in San Mateo, CA.  The full workshop title is "CRISPR/Cas9 Genome Editing Pipelines for Mice and Rats" and I'll be joined by Thom Saunders (University of Michigan) and Kevin Peterson (The Jackson Laboratory).  

The Festival of Genomics is a fairly new, recurring conference that has a lower registration fee than most traditional scientific-society meetings.  The speaker lineup for the meeting next week is pretty strong, with a strong biotech presence not surprising given the locale, but also strong plenaries from academics as well (Jennifer Doudna, of course; Carlos Bustamante, Manolis Kellis etc).  

Looks like Tues. Nov. 3 is mostly workshops, and Weds & Thurs Nov. 4-5 will feature plenary talks in the morning and then four concurrent tracks of sessions: Genome Editing, Genome Analysis, Genomic Medicine, and Data Analysis.    If you're in the SF bay area, check it out.
