Virus-based Gene Transfer Vectors 2020

Sep 23, 2020 12:30pm -
Sep 30, 2020 03:00pm

Event Description

Virus-based Gene Transfer Vectors is an intermediate course that will examine the molecules, processes, and techniques involved in recombinant gene expression. Participants will explore the technology of how viruses are converted into vector systems for the transfer of gene expression constructs. Common viral vector systems, including retroviruses, lentiviruses, adenoviruses, poxviruses, herpesviruses, alphaviruses, and baculoviruses will be discussed with an emphasis on the biosafety characteristics of the vectors derived from these viruses. This course is targeted for the biosafety professional who is not actively conducting laboratory research, yet requires a basic understanding of recombinant DNA methodology.

This webinar will be a two-2.5-hour session on Tuesday, September 24 and Thursday, September 26, 2019 at 12:00pm CDT.  For the webinar, you should plan on logging in at 11:45 am (CDT) on September 24 and September 26. You are required to attend the webinar session, complete the pre-course and post course assessments, and complete the evaluation in order to receive the completion certificate through the ABSA International Training Site. The link in the invitation will be unique to the user and cannot be shared.

Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
  • Describe processes of recombinant gene expression
  • Discuss concepts of viral vector technology and biosafety features
  • Recognize characteristics of vector systems unique to specific viruses
  • Apply knowledge of recombinant gene expression and viral vector principles to risk assessments
