Genome Engineering Videos
Dr. Le Cong, the first author of one of the seminal articles from Dr. Feng Zhang's Lab ( Science, February 2013 ), has created a series of videos about Genome Engineering and the CRISPR-Cas system. Visit the Zhang Lab CRISPR page and forum to learn more.
Genome Engineering: Motivation
This video provides background on the importance of genome engineering in life science research.
Genome Engineering: Basic Principles
This video includes clear diagrams of how genome engineering can be used to modify the genome.
Genome Engineering: Existing Technologies
This video discusses the different technologies for modifying the genome: CRISPR-Cas, TALEN, and Zinc Finger. It outlines important factors to consider when selecting which technology to use in the lab.
CRISPR-Cas Technology and its Applications
This video reviews the background for the CRISPR-Cas technology and discusses applications, providing data as appropriate. The talk ends with a detailed comparison of CRISPRs to other available genome engineering technologies.
