Cellular Mechanisms of Gene Regulation and Gene Editing Tools
MB&B 233
Spring 2021
Section: 01  

This course will explain the mechanisms of gene expression in eukaryotes. Then we will define the main and current techniques used for gene editing (CRISPR/Cas9, TALEN, site director mutagenesis, CRE/Lox recombination). Discussions will include how these technologies can be used to optimize organisms for health, food, and energy applications. Ethical use and current regulations of gene editing tools will also be considered.
