This years meeting was mainly dedicated to genome editing, cloning and stem cells. There were a lot of interesting talks about dog, horse and camelid cloning by B. C. Lee, A. Gambini and N. A. Wani.

Monika Nõmm and Marilin Ivask had a poster presentation about „Transgenic SCNT blastocyst selection with embryo biopsying”.

The conference ended with an exciting key note presentation from Justin St. John about “The mitochondrial genome: How it drives fertility”.

And ofcourse it is always nice to see collegues from UCPH Poul Hyttel and Lotte Strøbech.
