About Us

Genome Editing & Engineering is a highly-engaged grass-roots collaboration of faculty, staff, and students at UW applying cutting-edge genome engineering, design, and transgenic applications to their basic and applied research.

GEEwisc will hold “Super Group” meetings approximately every 3 months to learn about new methods, tips, and tricks from around campus that will help us all move forward.  We also plan on having separate, species specific meetings and seminars to help refine those techniques for individual organisms.
