InnovATEBIO Webinar Fall 2020 #2: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Biohacking: Using At-Home Biotech Kits in a Remote Learning Era

Professor Doug Bruce of 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 in their home. In addition, Doug will show how he is using an electronic laboratory notebook (ELN) as a means of collecting student data. ... Read more

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.
