RCSA will strengthen the research capability of the participants by comprehensive training besides stimulating the people by centring the idea globally. This workshop will highlight the impeccable efficiency of the CRISPR-Cas system in directing the genome editing to make plants nutritionally improved, resilient with enhanced yield. Further it will increase the fundamental knowledge for the application of the CRISPR-Cas technique accompanied with the implementation of the inferences drawn from NGS data employing machine learning approach. This workshop aims to sensitize the people towards the policies, rules, and regulations for the commercialization. 


Overview of CRISPR-mediated genome editing, Recent advances in CRISPR-Cas system, CRISPR-Cas system in agriculture: Nutrition, biotic & abiotic stress, Role of Artificial Intelligence and NGS in crop improvement, Policy and regulatory guidelines for genome-edited crops.


Attendance is limited to 30 participants, 15 seats are reserved to Indian participants, 15 seats will be available for ICGEB Member State nationals residing outside of India.
