Please join us at 6:00 pm on Tuesday, June 19th when the CERN Alumni New York Group and the NYU Physics Department welcome special guest Nancy J. Kelley, co-founder of Genome Project-write (GP-write). You are most welcome to bring up to four additional people to this event, please register for your free tickets by clicking on 'Join this event'.
GP-write is an open, international research project led by a multi-disciplinary group of scientific leaders who will oversee a reduction in the costs of engineering and testing large genomes in cell lines more than 1,000-fold within ten years.
Writing DNA is the future of science and medicine, and holds the promise of pulling us forward into a better future. While reading DNA code has continued to advance, our capability to write DNA code remains limited, which in turn restricts our ability to understand and manipulate biological systems. GP-write will enable scientists to move beyond observation to action, and facilitate the use of biological engineering to address many of the global problems facing humanity.
