No matter where you are, you can visit one of our CRISPR research labs in virtual reality!
We invite you to join us in 360° video! Hosted by Kai Frazier, visit the Innovative Genomics Institute, meet Jennifer Doudna, and learn how to E.D.I.T. DNA with CRISPR. While the IGI won't have visitors for the foreseeable future, we filmed a virtual field trip just before the COVID-19 pandemic forced us to close our doors.
Click on the video, hold, and drag to look around the entire 360° view. There's lots to see! If you have a a cardboard headset to hold your mobile device or a full VR headset, you can have a more immersive experience.

This CRISPR field trip was produced by KaiXR in collaboration with the IGI. Kai XR is a kid-friendly virtual reality platform where kids can explore, dream, and create. The team believes accessibility & inclusion in education should be a priority and not an afterthought. By utilizing virtual reality field trips to highlight diverse experiences around the world, they expose students to new ideas, locations, and sounds at an early age.
