OLLI: SCI-06b Frankencrispr: Hands-On Intro to CRISPR Gene Editing

ID : 7873   
« back to classes page
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.
