The IGI seeks to excite, engage, and empower diverse audiences with clear and reliable resources on CRISPR and genomics.
The IGI's educational materials strive to make science accessible and engaging for anyone who wants to understand it, whether you're new to science or have an advanced understanding. Our specialty is CRISPR genome editing and its applications in the real world for human health, sustainable agriculture, and climate change. Browse our resources for students and teachers alike, and see what you discover!
We want our work and resources to be as accessible as possible to all audiences. As you browse our site, you might notice that certain words have a dashed underline. These are all terms defined in our illustrated glossary. If you click on one of these special words, a pop-up window contains a definition and illustration of the term. We hope that this feature will make it easier to understand important scientific terms.
The glossary is currently available in both English and Spanish! Click the "Español" button within a tooltip to switch to Spanish, and or browse the entire glossary in Spanish.
