CRISPR, the latest innovation in recombinant gene research, has been called the most significant invention this century because of how industries from farming to medicine are applying CRISPR to engineer a better life for all of us. We’ll look at some of the amazing things CRISPR is making possible, and carry out a hands-on lab using CRISPR to copy the gene from a jellyfish and insert that gene into a bacteria. If your experiment is a success, the bacteria will assume the fluorescence property of the jellyfish, and so will all its offspring. This lab will demonstrate how easy CRISPR makes moving DNA from one organism to a different species. It doesn’t take much imagination to see what has been unleashed.
