CRISPR Labs in Your Classroom: A Genetic Cut above the Rest! (REMOTE)

This event has ended. We hope to see you at a future event. See upcoming events here: https://www.massbioed.org/events

CRISPR-Cas9 genome engineering is revolutionizing modern medicine technologies! 

Learn how to perform true CRISPR gene editing using the BIO-RAD kit. Through a hands-on lab performed at home under the guidance of a BIO-RAD instructor, teachers will learn how to safely apply CRISPR-Cas9 technology to disrupt the lacZ gene in E. coli to produce a phenotype that can be readily visualized through blue-white screening while utilizing familiar reagents and techniques. An optional genotyping extension is avaiable so that participants can further learn how to confirm edits at the molecular level using PCR and gel electrophoresis.
