The Future of Gene Editing Starts Here
The Gene Editing Institute provides an opportunity for all students to develop the skills needed to explore careers in gene editing and put CRISPR technology into practice.
Gene Editing 360TM:
Tools for a Journey of Discovery
Gene Editing 360TM is a suite of highly flexible educational tools designed to launch high school and college students on a journey of learning and discovery about the fundamentals of CRISPR gene editing technology.
CRISPR in a BoxTM
At the heart of Gene Editing 360TM is CRISPR in a BoxTM, a teaching toolkit that provides students in high schools, community colleges, universities, and remote classrooms with a unique, hands-on learning experience in CRISPR gene editing. The Gene Editing Institute developed CRISPR in a BoxTM with support from the National Science Foundation and in partnership with Rockland Immunochemicals and Delaware Technical Community College. The kit can be purchased from Rockland Immunochemicals, Carolina Biological Company and from Avantor/VWR.
The Gene Editing Institute hosts free monthly workshops in the Ammon Pinizzotto Biopharmaceutical Innovation Center on UD's STAR campus where participants complete a gene editing experiment using CRISPR technology and engage with CRISPR in a BoxTM experts.
