Cas-CLOVER™ “the clean alternative to CRISPR-Cas9” and piggyBac® for cell line development & engineering
December 9, 2020
11 am to 12 pm EST

Webinar Description:

Cas-CLOVER is a dual-guided truly dimeric targeted gene editing technology with high-fidelity resulting in nearly undetectable off-target mutations while maintaining high on-target efficiency. The system is ideal for cell line development for multiple technical reasons and the distinct IP portfolio of Cas-CLOVER enables commercial freedom-to-operate with a single license. The piggyBac transposase technology is highly effecient for non-targeted integration and expression for protein production. Using these technologies together with Elanco’s workflow which includes the Berkeley Lights Beacon® Optofuidic System we present an excellent demonstration of enhanced cell line development.

Learning Objectives:

  • This webinar is designed for researchers who want to engineer the CHO and other genomes for cell line development aimed at protein expression
  • Learn how Cas-CLOVER works and how it is different from CRISPR/Cas9
  • Learn how piggyBac works and some advantages of the system
  • What modifications can be done and how they may be implemented into the Beacon bioprocessing platform
