Good representation from the Mottram lab at the 3rd Advanced School IICB in Kolkata India (2019)
For the course, Nathaniel Jones and Nicola Baker gave a practical demonstration of CRISPR-Cas9 editing in Leishmania.
Regarding the course, Professor Mottram said: “CRIPSR genome editing transforms how we identify and validate new drug targets for neglected tropical diseases, such as leishmaniasis. The workshop in Kolkata provided theoretical and hands-on training in Leishmania gene manipulation, allowing students to extend the technology into their own research programs. The success of the workshops in Rio de Janeiro and Kolkata are inspiring us to hold further training for researchers from developing countries.”
