Give your students an insight into genome editing!
CRISPR is a revolutionary new genetic engineering technique that makes editing genomes easy and inexpensive. It is based on a type of immune system found in many types of prokaryote.
Students first make 3D models of the components of CRISPR - the enzyme Cas9 and guide RNAs. Next, they use these to see how genome editing is done. Making the model and carrying out the activity makes CRISPR easy to understand!
Origami Organelles are downloadable paper models that you print and make as many time as you like! When you purchase a model, you are licensed for unlimited use on a single site or campus.
Takes approx. 30 minutes to make and carry out activity
