Hands-on simulation of CRISPR-Cas9 to target and treat Cystic Fibrosis.
- Teach your students about new CRISPR technology
- Includes all required reagents
- Use DNA electrophoresis to view reach a diagnosis.
- Activity can be completed in 45 minutes
In this experiment, students will simulate the use of CRISPR-Cas9 to target a genetic mutation found in a patient suffering from Cystic Fibrosis.
Students will develop an understanding of guide RNA (gRNA) design, and use agarose gel electrophoresis to examine pre-prepared DNA samples after CRISPR treatment.
Additional items needed but not included: DNA electrophoresis equipment, white-light box, microwave or hot plate.
Ordering information: Kit will ship immediately upon ordering. Please call to specify a future shipping date.
Caution: Store DNA samples in the refrigerator. All other components may be stored at room temperature.
