Join us for a thought-provoking discussion about the new gene editing technology CRISPR-Cas9 and how it is transforming the world of bioengineering.
On November 22nd, we will be presenting two workshops that will provide attendees with an understanding of the technologies employed at the Network Biology Collaborative Centre and how they can employ these services in their own research projects. Note that you must register for each workshop separately.

The differences between two young oak trees in a greenhouse at the Vineland Research and Innovation Centre (Vineland) are immediately noticeable. Not only is one twice the size of the other, but its root base is much thicker.
A new sequencing technology, combined with a new computer algorithm that can yield detailed information about complex genomes of various organisms, has been used to produce a high-quality draft genome sequence of cabernet sauvignon.
Why doesn’t Canada hold the #1 or #2 spots, or at least rank in the top five in the world for biotech? Right about now you are thinking this piece is about the lack of U.S. venture capital in Canada; it is not, in fact, far from it.
A recent effort, at Vanderbilt University, to sequence the genome of an unusual virus has led to a bizarre discovery: one-third of the virus’s genes are animal-like, and match up with the DNA of a toxin found in black widow spider venom.
