CRISPR Adaptive Immunity Kit©

Product Code: CAIK


Quantity: - +

Set your students up for successful CRISPR investigations by first exploring how bacteria seek and destroy viral invaders.

⚠  Warning


An effective search-and-destroy CRISPR system in bacteria inspired innovation in genetic technology. Your classroom can become a design solutions lab as students discover the role of the Cas9 protein in defending against bacteriophages. With engaging foam pieces and chenille bacteriaphage genomes, your students can:

  • Build the bacteria’s CRISPR array which includes Cas9, a tracr, spacer, and repeats
  • Detect the presence of viral double-stranded DNA
  • Integrate a short fragment of this viral genome into the bacteria’s CRISPR array
  • Express the CRISPR array to create the Cas9 proteins and the guide RNA
Students then transfer their knowledge to the current genetic engineering design solution when they use the Making the Cut with CRISPR-Cas9© kit.
