News from the CRG
The Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) hosted its 17th CRG Symposium titled “Trends in Biology: cutting edge techniques from genomes to organisms” on 27th and 28th September at the PRBB in Barcelona. The meeting, organized by a committee of young CRG researchers including PhD students and postdoctoral researchers, was focused on new state-of-the-art technologies that are reshaping biomedical research.
Scientific advances depend to a large extent on technological advances so, this meeting will explore how current technologies might shape our future way of thinking about biological problems. The meeting brought top leading international scientists to interact with the global and local scientific community to share ideas, discuss results and debate on this amazing topic.
A number of themes were covered, including: single molecule and real time imaging techniques, single cell genomics, genome and organoid engineering, DNA modification and synthetic virology and biology.
