Coronavirus diagnostics is about to light up — literally! Scientists are using CRISPR technology to test for COVID-19, which would trigger a patient sample to release light if a positive sample is detected. Watch this animated special by Science at Cal and the Lawrence Hall of Science, featuring UC Berkeley graduate student Luis Valentin-Alvarado, to learn how scientists are using CRISPR to create fast, cheap tests for COVID-19!
