Merry CRISPR! – Helsinki 11th-15th of December

Merry CRISPR was a workshop produced by the Bioartsociety in collaboration with Biofilia laboratory – Aalto University, and supported by Aalto UniveristyMA in Ecology and Contemporary Performance and Time and Space Arts (both University of the Arts Helsinki) and TAIKE.

The workshop took place 11th – 15th of December at the Biofilia laboratory on the Aalto University Campus in Otaniemi/Espoo/Finland.

Merry CRISPR was made using two CRISPR kits: one is the popular The ODIN (http://www.the-odin.com/) and the second was kindly prepared for us in Mariana Gomes de Pinho Lab (http://www.itqb.unl.pt/research/biology/bacterial-cell-biology), at ITQB in Lisbon, by her excepcional PhD student Moritz Sorg.
