CRISPR/Cas9 Mini Model
Give your students a hands-on exploration of the next generation in genetic engineering! We are thrilled to be able to offer an affordable version of the 3D-printed Cas9 component of the CRISPR gene editing technology.
Jennifer Doudna, PhD, Professor at UC-Berkeley and Executive Director of the Innovative Genomics Initiative (IGI), is one of the pioneers of the CRISPR/Cas9 technique, which allows researchers to make specific changes to the genetic code of cells and organisms. 3D Molecular Designs designed and built the model for Dr. Doudna with Jacob Corn, PhD, Scientific Director of the IGI. The front segment of the model detaches, allowing students a closer look at the guide RNA and two strands of DNA inside.
The 5'' model is made of plaster by 3-D printing and should be handled with care. It will break if dropped, held tightly or handled roughly. The 11'' nylon model is more resilient but will break if held tightly or handled roughly. It is a custom PDB file.
