Teach CRISPR in an interactive way!

CRISPR is a revolutionary new genetic engineering technique that makes editing genomes easy and inexpensive. It is based on a type of immune system found in many types of prokaryote.

Students first make 3D models of the components of CRISPR - the enzyme Cas9 and guide RNAs. Next, they use these to see how CRISPR is used to edit a genome.

The model also shows how CRISPR can be used to control gene transcription and to knockout genes. Making the model and carrying out the activity makes CRISPR easy to understand.

Includes full colour Powerpoint class presentation!

Takes about 30 minutes to make and carry out the activity.

Dimensions: 26cm x 18cm / 10in x 7in

Download includes: instructions, templates and Powerpoint file.
