The Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology (CSIR), invites applications for certification course in Skill Development under the aegis of CSIR Integrated Skill Initiative
CCMB proposes a training course in genome engineering of mammalian cells using gene-editing technology CRISPRs to generate human resources that are employment-ready for the requirements of industries and academia.
The program targets students and employees from government labs/Institutes, Industries, Hospitals, Pathology Laboratories, Universities with a view to train them to be able to design and construct CRISPR constructs and generate knock-out and knock-in mammalian cell lines.
