The Center for Genome Engineering (CGE) is made up of faculty who share a common interest in developing methods for modifying DNA in living cells.
Applications of CGE technology are varied, and include:
enabling gene discovery
making better plants and animals for agriculture
developing regenerative medicine
providing therapeutic strategies to correct mutations underlying genetic disease
The CGE is recognized worldwide for its expertise in genome engineering with seminal contributions to this field. Collectively, CGE faculty advance the research and clinical objectives of the UMN’s medical enterprise, including our understanding of biological processes and ways to successfully modify living cells for many applications. Indeed, CGE technologies are used by investigators around the world for basic and applied biological research.
IEM Bioscitech Symposium - Genome Engineering Session
Tuesday April 7, 2020, 1:15pm–4:00pm
in the Beacon Room at the University Recreation and Wellness Center
Thank you for yourinterest in the Genome Engineering Session of IEM's BioSciTech Symposium on April 7th, 2020. Due to recent concerns related to the COVID-19 coronavirus, we must cancel our session as its intent was primarily focused on networking.
Recommendations from the CDC and WHO suggest that caution is warranted. Travel restrictions are increasingly being implemented, and many institutions have enacted temporary policies to ban non-essential travel.
We greatly appreciate your continued interest in the Center for Genome Engineering and look forward to participation in upcoming events.
