Hands-on Genome Editing with CRISPR
Session Leaders: Ellen Jorgensen
Created By: Ellen Jorgensen
CRISPR has been described as a word processor for genomes. Learn how it works, and try it yourself in a fun hands-on lab where you'll use CRISPR to delete a gene in bakers's yeast, resulting in a pink color. How far has this technology gone, and what are its implications for human identity and the planet? What are the ramifications of plug-and-play genome editing? We will speculate even as we become part of the do-it-yourself biology revolution.
