UCSF RNA Journal Club

A newsletter announcing the next presenter for RNA Journal Club

Welcome to the UCSF RNA Journal Club!

The aim of this journal club is to discuss recent papers that deal with RNA biology, with an emphasis on gene silencing. Each week, one of our members presents a recent paper to the group on interesting new RNA biology. Membership in this journal club is open to anyone interested in RNA biology.

Presentations are given every Tuesday at noon at UCSF Parnassus, HSW 1057. Lunch is provided. If you are interested in participating, join the group using the link at the right.

Accelerating Discovery with CRISPR Editing
Learn how genomic engineering can help build your next breakthrough! Built on 20 years of industry-leading innovation, our comprehensive genome engineering portfolio can help you meet your research needs. Together with an overview of the entire genome engineering workflow, we will focus on how to utilize the newest technologies of the CRISPR/Cas9 system to accelerate your discovery research. * The various CRISPR-Cas9 formats available today and which is best for your specific application * Transfection optimization for efficient CRISPR-Cas9 delivery * Donor synthesis for knock-in experiments * The latest easy-to-use assays for detecting and enriching cells with edited genomes * How to troubleshoot your CRISPR experiments to achieve higher efficiencies with minimal off-target effects * CRISPR lentiviral and purified gRNA libraries for screening applications * Case study of a custom cell line engineering project (knock out) Don’t miss our discussion regarding CRISPRs.
