Thanks to the genome-editing tool, CRISPR -Cas systems have caught the eye of politicians, the media, the general public, and our students. The field of CRISPR -Cas provides a fantastic opportunity for microbiology education. It offers a learning experience that illustrates the interconnectedness of multiple curriculum areas. Students must use knowledge gained in various fields to fully grasp the activities of CRISPR -Cas systems. For the past four years, we have integrated CRISPR -Cas into our Microbiology program in both lecture and laboratory environments. This seminar will present the laboratory course where students have studied CRISPR -Cas as an defense system against phage infections.

This talk is part of the Bacteriophage 2017 series.
