Theme: Focusing on Ongoing Research in Genomic Science

Genome Editing Webinar welcomes every one of the participants, professors, associates, delegates and speakers from across the globe throughout the world to attend this webinar on April 28, 2021.  During this time of crisis webinar gives you the opportunity to connect and share knowledge and experience about a given topic. Webinar helps to connect different people and gives you the right amount of exposure required during this time of crisis. Genome Editing (or Gene Editing) is a technique that allows scientists, researchers or research laboratories to alternate or modify an organism’s DNA.  This technique allows them to add, remove or alter genetic materials from different locations in the Genome. Genome Editing Technique leads to the change of physical traits which helps the scientists to determine the link between genetic materials and physical attributes.


Introduction to Genome Editing

Genome Editing also known as (“Gene editing “or “Genetic engineering”) which includes different techniques that alters the Genetic Materials of the organism. These techniques aim at inserting, removing, replacing and modifying different fragments of DNA. These techniques help to “rewrite” DNA that enables the scientists to perform different experiments and look into the difference in the physical attributes and characteristics.


CRISPR/Cas9 edits genes by precisely cutting DNA and then letting natural DNA repair processes to take over. The system consists of two parts: the Cas9 enzyme and a guide RNA. CRISPR-Cas9 is a genome editing tool that is creating a buzz in the science world. It is faster, cheaper and more accurate than previous techniques of editing DNA and has a wide range of potential applications.

Next Generation Sequencing ( NGS)

The massively parallel sequencing technology known as next-generation sequencing (NGS) has revolutionized the biological sciences. With its ultra-high throughput, scalability, and speed, NGS enables researchers to perform a wide variety of applications and study biological systems at a level never before possible. Today’s complex genomic research questions demand a depth of information beyond the capacity of traditional DNA sequencing technologies. Next-generation sequencing has filled that gap and become an everyday research tool to address these questions.

Genetically Modified Organism(GMO)

A GMO, or genetically modified organism, is a plant, animal, microorganism or other organism whose genetic makeup has been modified in a laboratory using genetic engineering or transgenic technology. This creates combinations of plant, animal, bacterial and virus genes that do not occur in nature or through traditional crossbreeding methods.

Future of Genome Editing

Genome editing is thus based on the use of engineered molecules that target and cut a specific site in a gene. By either allowing the cell to use its default repair mechanism that can cause the gene to be corrupted, or by tricking the cell into making an incorrect repair, almost any modification to the cell’s genome is possible. The applications are various; from understanding the function of a gene by generating genetically modified animals or cells, to gene therapy, drug research, and even agriculture. More importantly yet, the use of genome editing continues to grow and it is likely that these technologies will accelerate research, leading to important scientific breakthroughs in years to come.
