I am working with Nadeera Ali and Lauren Gennareli on The Effect of CRISPR on the Lacz Gene in E.coli. Our project will complete a deletion of the lacz gene in e.coli using CRISPR. This will show the effectiveness and efficiency of the CRISPR cas-9 system. It is important because of the possible uses for CRISPR in the future. The topic of the project began with our shared interest in genetics and more specifically genetic engineering. This led us to the idea of CRISPR. I am most excited to learn if CRISPR can be done in a classroom setting successfully.
