MCDB 4101 - Editing Genomes with CRISPR-Cas9 Discovering Gene Function Course uri icon



  • Discover novel gene function in vertebrate embryonic development using the latest gene-editing technology, CRISPR-Cas9. Pick your gene of interest and design experiments to mutate the gene, confirm the mutation and characterize the phenotype. Search scientific databases to learn more about the gene and formulate a hypothesis about the gene function. Discuss and present your findings to your peer and faculty. Recommended prerequisites: MCDB 3135 and MCDB 3145.
