Topics covered in the symposium will range from the biological roles of TAL effectors and CRISPR/cas systems in their native contexts, proof-of-concept experiments, and successful applications of the technologies.
The symposium is hosted by the ISU Crop Bioengineering Consortium, which seeks to address the urgent, grand challenge to provide sufficient food, feed, biofuels and biorenewable chemicals for the world's burgeoning population, through basic and applied research to enable the bioengineering of valuable traits in a variety of crops.
