Students, teachers, parents — welcome! Thank you for your interest in following up on the Expanding Your Horizon’s workshop! Here’s a summary of what we talked about today, along with many links to videos and sites where you can learn more about gene editing.
For the 2017 Expanding Your Horizons event in Edmonds, WA, the University of Washington’s Women in Genome Sciences group created a workshop around the topic of gene (genome) editing (find the lesson plan here, and the presentation here). Our goals for this workshop were to communicate the key terms and concepts of gene editing, and apply a scientific thought process to some familiar and not-so-familiar problems.
