Science Lecture - How CRISPR helps answer basic questions in biology: from crustacean limbs to butterfly wings

Lecture | June 16 | 11 a.m.-12 p.m. | 100 Genetics & Plant Biology Building

 Dr. Nipam Patel, Professor, Department of Molecular and Cell Biology


CRISPR technology has emerged as a wonderful tool for gene editing that has enormous implications for improving human health, but many scientists have also used it to make remarkable advances in asking very basic biology questions, particularly in animals that might have been previously relatively intractable to experimental manipulations. Dr. Niapm Patel will give examples from his lab’s work on...   More >
