COVID-19 in Context: Hands-On Laboratory Activities and Real-World Scenarios

Friday, November 13 • 4:50 PM - 5:35 PM

Show Details

Sponsoring Company: Bio-Rad Laboratories

Tap into your students' curiosity about COVID-19 to teach key biology concepts in context. In this session, see hands-on classroom activities that use the same laboratory techniques as those used for COVID-19 detection. Walk through a real-world scenario where students determine how COVID-19 spreads at a restaurant.

TAKEAWAYS:
1. Learn about new activities to teach ELISA and gel electrophoresis in the context of the science of COVID-19; and 2. walk through a real-world problem-solving case study about the spread of COVID-19 in a restaurant.

Cut, Paste, Confirm: Real CRISPR Gene Editing and PCR Genotyping

Saturday, November 14 • 1:00 PM - 1:45 PM

Show Details

Sponsoring Company: Bio-Rad Laboratories

Now your students can do real and safe CRISPR gene editing in your classroom using Bio-Rad’s Out of the Blue CRISPR Kit. See how to use PCR to confirm the genotype of Out of the Blue–edited bacteria using Bio-Rad's Out of the Blue Genotyping Extension.

TAKEAWAYS:
1. Learn about the mechanisms of CRISPR-Cas gene editing; 2. see how students can do safe and real CRISPR gene editing in the classroom; and 3. learn how PCR can be used to verify genotype following CRISPR gene editing.
