2018-2019 Science Olympiad

Protein Modeling Event Kits

Even bacteria get infected with viruses! The 2018-2019 Science Olympiad Protein Modeling event explores one way bacteria combat viral infections. Using CRISPR (clustered regularly interspersed palindromic repeats) and Cas proteins, bacteria recognize viral DNA and chop it into pieces. Viruses counterattack using AntiCRISPR. This season’s protein modeling event examines the structures of CRISPR and AntiCRISPR – the war on bugs!
