Emerging rapid assay technologies
This two and a half day course focuses on
innovative technologies for rapid tests. A lecture
series designed from classical development
approaches to manufacturing processes will be
presented. The course also provides hands-on work
sessions following a structured program for making
rapid tests from raw material to finished product.

In a new study in cells, University of Illinois researchers have adapted CRISPR gene-editing technology to cause the cell’s internal machinery to skip over a small portion of a gene when transcribing it into a template for protein building. This gives researchers a way not only to eliminate a mutated gene sequence, but to influence how the gene is expressed and regulated.
Researchers published today a detailed description of the complete genome of bread wheat, the world's most widely-cultivated crop. This work will pave the way for the production of wheat varieties better adapted to climate challenges, with higher yields, enhanced nutritional quality and improved sustainability.
