Through funding from a National Science Foundation Advanced Technological Education (NSF-ATE) grant, we have developed an innovative laboratory exercise and curriculum on CRISPR gene editing. The kit exercise provides the ability to perform state of the art CRISPR gene editing laboratory procedures, giving students at the high school and introductory college course level the ability to learn the science behind current gene editing efforts without the need for elaborate materials or equipment. At its base, this exercise enables students to practice CRISPR-directed gene editing using a ... Read more

Professor Doug Bruce from Laney College will talk about implementing at-home biotech kits in his introductory biotech lab class. Doug adopted kits and curriculum from The Odin, a Bay Area biotech company that sells “biohacking" kits, and provided students with all the equipment they would need to complete the labs at home. In addition, Doug will show how his students are using an electronic laboratory notebook (ELN) for collecting data.

Together CRISPR and Cas provide bacteria with an adaptive immune system that allows them to identify and defend against new viral invaders. While characterizing the basic biology of this system, researchers discovered that the Cas9 protein could be harnessed to engineer genomic DNA. In this session, we discuss the basic biology of the CRISPR / Cas system and discuss how researchers are using this system in new ways to engineer living things.
