ABOUT THIS PRODUCT:


Explore cutting-edge biotechnology with this hands-on CRISPR-Cas9 simulation. Students will assume the role of plant geneticists working to develop corn crops capable of surviving, and thriving, in a changing environment. This experiment will allow students to develop an understanding of CRISPR-Cas9 applications in the laboratory, cleave DNA, and examine their results after gel electrophoresis.
