Explore cutting edge biotechnology with this CRISPR simulation.
- Hands-on CRISPR Simulation
- Create Guide RNAs (gRNAs)
- Use BLAST to verify gRNAs' specificity
- Test your gRNAs using gel electrophoresis
- Complete in approx. 1 hour 45 min
Students will assume the role of plant geneticists working to develop corn crops capable of surviving, and thriving, in a changing environment.
This experiment will allow students to develop an understanding of CRISPR-Cas9 applications in the laboratory, cleave DNA, and examine their results after gel electrophoresis.
Additional equipment needed but not included: DNA electrophoresis equipment, microwave or hot plate.
