CRISPR gene editing is revolutionizing scientific research. Now your students can do real CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing in the classroom using Bio-Rad's educational CRISPR gene editing kits. These kits use familiar — and safe — reagents, techniques, and organisms to bring your students to the cutting edge (“literally”) of molecular biology.
Perform CRISPR in the Classroom
Use real CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing to edit the lacZ gene in E. coli.
- Out of the Blue CRISPR Kit — apply CRISPR-Cas9 technology to disrupt the lacZ gene in E. coli and produce a phenotype that can be readily visualized through blue-white screening
- Out of the Blue CRISPR Genotyping Extension — (optional) confirm the edit at the molecular level using PCR and agarose gel electrophoresis
Deepen your understanding of CRISPR and the promise, risks, and ethics behind its many applications.
