The Wagner Free Institute of Science presents genome editing I: What is the CRISPR technology?
Wed, April 24, 2019 6:15 P.M.
CRISPR (Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats) is part of a naturally occurring microbial genome editing system that provides microbes with a defense against viruses. Significant scientific breakthroughs developed the CRISPR system into a gene-editing tool that could be used in cells from humans, animals, and plants. The first class of a two-class sequence will focus on an overview of genome editing and CRISPR technology.
