Practical training in genome editing in, from sequence design to molecular biology, generation of edited animals, and phenotypic analysis. Students undertake individual research projects involving CRISPR. In addition to the stated prerequisites, prior or concurrent enrollment in BISC 2214 or permission of instructor is required. Laboratory fee.
Students will: • Learn about the possibilities and strategies offered by CRISPR genome editing. • Develop basic molecular laboratory skills used in academic and clinical laboratories as well as in the biotechnology industry. • Acquire expertise in microscopy and micro-manipulation that are seldom taught in a university setting. • Design and perform their own genome editing experiment, from the targeted DNA sequence to the analysis and confirmation of genetic modification • Be encouraged to present their results in a poster, conference or co-authored publication • Be exposed to the bio-ethical challenges raised by genome editing in the 21st century.
