Description

CRISPR Foundations is an online CRISPR course where you will learn what CRISPR is, how it works, and how it's revolutionizing our world. Your instructor, Dr. Kris, starts at step 1 - what is CRISPR? And by the end, you'll know how CRISPR actually rewrites DNA and how scientists are expanding the CRISPR toolbox through metagenomics and protein engineering. Plus, a very deep dive into the CRISPR cure for sickle cell disease. Finally, ever wondered how an idea in someone's head gets turned into a drug? That's the last stop of this tour. Learn how new ideas are formed and tested, the checkpoints for moving them forward in clinical development, and the various occupations available throughout this drug product development lifecycle.

As well as expanding my CRISPR kowledge, i feel a notably improvement at the time of doing a listening exercise for the C1 exam and my vocabulary has also been enhanced through this weeks.

I am not very interested at science commercialization, or actually I struggle in understanding information related to companies and laws. but I enjoined the CRISPR ethics part.
