From basic biology to a genome editing revolution, the story of CRISPR is one of curiosity, teamwork, and endless possibilities. Join Jennifer as she recounts the early stages of CRISPR research on Berkeley’s campus and the moment she grasped the full potential of CRISPR technology. Moderated by Ron Vale of UCSF and HHMI, this conversation will unpack the weeks and days leading up to the Doudna lab’s seminal CRISPR experiments. Where did CRISPR technology come from and where is it going?
This event is co-organized by The Explorer’s Guide to Biology (XBio). Check out Dr. Doudna’s chapter entitled “CRISPR-Cas9 A New Tool for Genome Editing” to learn more about her seminal 2012 experiments and see what other free resources XBio has to offer!
