A Beginner’s Guide to Gene Editing in Biotechnology

A Beginner’s Guide to Gene Editing in Biotechnology

Learn about the many uses of the gene editing technologies ZFN, TALEN, and CRISPR Cas.

What you’ll learn

A Beginner’s Guide to Gene Editing in Biotechnology

  • You’ll get an overview of the most recent developments in the area as well as gene editing methods including ZFN, TALEN, and CRISPR Cas.
  • You’ll find illustrations of cutting-edge CRISPR-Cas gene editing applications.
  • Learn how ZFN, TALEN, and CRISPR Cas gene editing techniques differ from one another and how to use them in certain situations.
  • You’ll discover the moral implications of germline gene editing.
  • You’ll learn how newer technologies have emerged from the original CRISPR-Cas system.


  • You need to understand the basics of molecular biology and how DNA copies and fixes itself.


This course exposes you to the vast array of opportunities that have been made possible by the numerous gene editing technologies created in the last ten years. There will be a focus on the CRISPR Cas system as you learn about Zinc Finger Nucleases, Transcription Activator Like Effector Nucleases, and CRISPR.

Base editing, prime editing, mitochondrial gene editing, and many more ideas will be covered.

Finally, an interesting case study will be used to talk about how gene editing affects ethics.

The series’ high points include the following

  1. A look at the development and history of gene editing nucleases.
  2. insights into how to improve the CRISPR Cas system for both general and clinical use.
  3. Learn how a species may be either extinct or brought back to life using the same gene editing technology.

The course ends with a final discussion about how this technology could be used and how you, as a researcher, could improve it while working on some of the most important problems in modern research.

So take this course right now to learn more about gene editing technology.

Who this course is for:

  • This course is recommended for those who wish to learn more about gene editing in biotechnology and related industries.
  • This course is not for people who have never done this before and want a traditional college curriculum, nor is it for professionals in the field who want to learn more.
