Meeting Organizer Grants

FEMS supports selected meetings within the European Area with a Meeting Organizer Grant. Scientific conferences, laboratory workshops and training courses will be considered for such support. The maximum amount of a Meeting Organizer Grant is € 15 000. The Meeting Organizer Grant replaces two of our former grants: National and Regional Congresses Grant and the Meeting Grants. You will find our Grants Regulations here.

A minimum of 60% of total grant value of the Meeting Organizer Grant is to be used to support the attendance of Early Career Scientists.

A protocol for multiple genetic modifications in S. cerevisiae using CRISPR/Cas9

Two methods are described for efficient genetic modification of Saccharomyces cerevisiae using CRISPR/Cas9. The first method enables the modification of a single genetic locus using in vivo assembly of a guide RNA (gRNA) expression plasmid without the need for prior cloning. A second method using in vitro assembled plasmids that could contain up to two gRNAs was used to simultaneously introduce up to six genetic modifications (e.g. six gene deletions) in a single transformation step by transforming up to three gRNA expression plasmids simultaneously. The method is not only suitable for gene deletion but is also applicable for in vivo site-directed mutagenesis and integration of multiple DNA fragments in a single locus.
