Young researcher from CPSBB participated in the 3rd PlantED Conference in Germany
Ms. Manuela Stoyanova was invited to participate in the 3rd PlantED Conference COST Action (18111) in Germany on 5-7 September 2022. This year due to COVID restrictions, the number of physically present delegates was limited, and Ms. Stoyanova was among the 100 selected participants for the conference in Dusseldorf.
The event was held over three days, with open scientific sessions on genome editing technology in plants, followed by PlantEd Working Group (WG) sessions and a Management Committee (MC) meeting. The event is part of the plant genome editing research network across Europe and beyond, an excellent platform for dissemination, discussions, networking, and updating the latest research and innovation.
Moreover, Ms. Stoyanova applied and was endorsed to participate in a Training School on the topic “CRISPR/Cas experiment design”. The training focused on tools for successful CRISPR design, in silico cloning, vector construction, screening of DNA mutations, and data analysis. The main objective was to equip participants with a complete set of experimental considerations and best practices to set up targeted mutagenesis experiments in their labs.
