1) Gene transfer efficacy in humans is difficult to predict from animal models
2) Forced viral evolution can be used to find gene transfer vectors with novel properties
3) Vectors can be designed to express a protein and/or turn down/off a specific host protein when introduced into cells
4) Viral vectors can be used to genetically modify specific/targeted sequences in the genome
About the CASSS Bay Area Discussion Group:
CASSS began as a local, non-profit chromatography discussion group in the SF Bay Area. Although its offerings have now grown to include multiple North American and international scientific symposia and its members span the globe, CASSS still provides local educational and networking opportunities for scientists in Northern California. The CASSS Bay Area Discussion Groups are your opportunity to meet others who understand what you do, in an informal setting, and exchange new ideas.
