Base editors are a new class of CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing agents for modifying genomes in experimental systems. Research efforts have broadened their editing capabilities, expanded their targeting scope, and improved editing specificity. In this webinar, experts will discuss cytosine and adenosine base-editors to introduce point mutations in DNA strands without creating a breakpoint, and opportunities and considerations for using them.

Topics to be covered

  • How to chemically change one base to another without affecting DNA stability
  • Advantages of base editors over traditional gene-editing tools
  • The clinical application of CRISPR base editors
