CRISPR’s most relevant and revolutionary uses require more than just knockouts! Now your students can do real CRISPR-Cas9 chromosomal gene editing in your classroom!
In this live hands-on webinar developed with educators for educators, attendees will use CRISPR-Cas9 to edit an E. coli chromosomal gene. We'll talk about controls, predicted results, the differences between a gene knockout and a “cut-and-repair,” and how to troubleshoot any unexpected results.
The first 30 registrants based in the USA will receive one student workstation from the Out of the Blue CRISPR kit so they can perform the lab during the workshop. No equipment is needed - just easily accessible household items! If you are among the first 30 to sign up, you'll receive a form about a week before the event to input your shipping information.
We recommend that participants have a basic understanding of bacterial transformation before attending this webinar.

This webinar will be presented by Leigh Brown. Leigh has a background in virology research and was a former biology teacher. In her role at Bio-Rad, she helps teachers implement biotech labs into their courses through hands-on training and personalized curriculum support.
Note: No continuing education credits or certificates are being offered for attending this event. Attendees will receive an email after the event that they may use as proof of attendance.
