Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2018-2019.

Recent advances in our capacity to direct molecules to specific DNA sequences in vitro and in living cells give us an unprecedented ability to probe and modify the genetic material. Through primary literature, this course considers applications of DNA targeting, ranging from systems biology to genome editing; reagents, including zinc finger proteins, TAL effectors, the CRISPR/Cas9 complex and others; and impact, reaching basic science, agriculture, and medicine. Regulatory, ethical, intellectual property, and public perception considerations are also discussed.

When Offered Spring.
