Lesson Plan for Schools on CRISPR Gene Editing in Animals (New York Times)

"Crispr-Cas9 is the most powerful of the new gene-editing tools. Watch the above video about how the process works and take notes on what you learn. Try to gather information for these questions:

  • What is the Crispr method?
  • What is Cas9?
  • How have scientists engineered the Crispr-Cas9 system to cut and even replace any DNA sequence in animal or human genes?

Then, as a class, discuss what you have learned, and write down any questions you still have about gene editing or its implications."
