P279: CRISPR/cas: Before gene editing in Splash Fall 2016 (Nov. 05, 2016 - Apr. 29, 2017)
This class will take a hypothesis-based approach towards understanding how CRISPR/cas (An "adaptive immune system" used by bacteria and archaea) was discovered. You'll analyze data from real bacterial genetics and molecular biology experiments related to the CRISPR/cas system to learn how scientists approach new problems. We'll also touch on the applications of CRISPR/cas, including gene editing!
