Event Overview

CRISPR is known for its role in gene editing, but scientists also use the technology to craft cutting-edge biological sensors that detect viral agents, gene expression changes, and environmental contaminants. CRISPR/Cas biosensors are highly sensitive, specific, and cost-effective, supporting point-of-care use without the need for technical expertise and complicated equipment. In this webinar from The Scientist, Kiana Aran and Can Dincer will discuss the benefits of CRISPR-based diagnostics and highlight advances in CRISPR-based biosensing for nucleic acid detection.

Topics to be covered
  • Strategies for CRISPR biosensor development
  • Detection of unamplified targets with CRISPR biosensors
