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.
