Give your students an insight into genome editing

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 genome editing is done. Making the model and carrying out the activity makes CRISPR easy to understand!
