Several Haynes lab members including Cassandra Barrett, Rene Daer, David Nyer, Stefan Tekel, and Daniel Vargas will be presenting research at a 2016 Fall Retreat organized by the Engineering Biology Research Consortium (EBRC). The retreat will take place at CalTech in Pasadena, CA November 1 – 3, 2016. EBRC members include some of the most prestigious labs in synthetic biology. Attendees will come from academic, industry, and government institutions from across the country.
Dr. Haynes has been invited to speak at the 3rd Synthetic Biology Congress on October 20 – 21, 2016 in London, UK. She will present “Regulation of cancer epigenomes with a histone-binding synthetic transcription factor.” The Synthetic Biology Congress will highlight the latest developments in genome engineering, technological development, cell building, bio-manufacturing and gene editing. The meeting will host experts from across the globe who specialize in healthcare and plant biology.
Slides from Dr. Haynes’ presentation, as well as other talks, are available online: http://www.globalengage.co.uk/synthetic/pr16.html
Haynes lab PhD student Rene Daer will present a talk at the 2016 American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) meeting, one of the largest annual scientific meetings in the US. Her abstract “The impact of chromatin dynamics on Cas9-mediated genome editing in human cells,” was selected for an oral presentation in the Minisymposium entitled, “Use Synthetic Biology to Measure and Manipulate Cell Biology” under the topic Synthetic and Systems Biology. The meeting will be held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA, from December 3-7.
Please consider registering for this conference. Poster abstracts will be accepted until October 13, 2016.
Dr. Haynes and Research Technician David Nyer have been invited to give a talk and a poster at the 2016 Synthetic Biology: Engineering, Evolution & Design (SEED) conference in Chicago, IL July 18-21, 2016.
