S12720: Gene Editing: from Past to Present in Splash 2018 (Nov. 17 - 18, 2018)
CRISPR-Cas9 is one of the hottest things in biology right now - do you want to be able to understand current research in the field? We'll cover a lot in this class: from the basics of DNA repair to the discovery of CRISPR-Cas9 to the latest in gene editing research. We'll try to make it understandable, but also at a fairly deep level. This will primarily be a lecture-based class, but we'll leave ample time for discussion or questions!


S12723: How to answer biological questions in Splash 2018 (Nov. 17 - 18, 2018)
Have you ever wondered how all of the cool facts in your biology class were deduced? In this class, we'll focus on the central dogma and introduce you to some basic assays in molecular biology and some not-so-basic ones as well. Through discussion, we'll try to design and come up with ways to try and answer questions like "How does the 3D shape of the nucleus affect gene expression?" and "How do we know where a specific protein binds in the genome?"
