The 2019 Transgenic Technology Meeting (TT2019) represents something of a milestone, the 15th holding of this event since its inception. Organiers are delighted that this memorable occasion for the International Society for Transgenic Technologies (ISTT) will be hosted in the city of Kobe, Japan, supported by the RIKEN Center for Biosystems Dynamics Research (BDR) and co-sponsored by Molecular Biology Society of Japan (MBSJ).
The past four decades of animal transgenesis research have seen a number of technological breakthroughs which have paved the way to linking genes and their functions. The current landscape of transgenic technologies includes a great many multi‐disciplinary approaches to the generation and characterization of genetically modified animal models. In particular, emergence of genome editing technologies and their application to animals in experimental and industrial settings have been transforming how we approach to the development of genetically engineered animal resources. This trend is likely to accelerate, and our goal is to make the TT2019 Meeting a venue for the transgenic technology community to explore possible future directions for the field. To this end, the Committee has been working rigorously to formulate an excellent panel of speakers in many disciplines.
MC. Birling, PHENOMIN-ICS, will present “Generation of genomic structural variants and chromosomal manipulation by CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing in rodents”, over the session covering the new Developments in transgenic technologies.
