Biotechnology: A Beginner’s Guide to Gene Editing

Explore the gene editing tools - ZFN, TALEN, CRISPR Cas and their extensive applications


Explore the gene editing tools – ZFN, TALEN, CRISPR Cas and their extensive applications


  • Basic knowledge in molecular biology and an understanding of the concepts on DNA replication, repair is required.


This course introduces to you, the enormous possibilities that have been opened up by various gene editing tools developed in the last decade.  You’ll learn about Zinc Finger Nucleases, Transcription Activator Like Effector Nucleases, and CRISPR Cas with a special emphasis on the CRISPR Cas system.

You’ll explore concepts like- Base editing, Prime editing, Mitochondrial Gene editing and much more.

Finally you’ll study the ethical aspects of gene editing with an interesting case study.

The highlights of this lecture series are

(i) glimpses into the history and evolution of gene editing nucleases

(ii) insights on how fine tuning of the CRISPR Cas system  maximized it’s potential in general and clinical applications

(iii) discovering  how the same gene editing tool can serve opposite ends of the spectrum of life- revival vs extinction of a species.

The course wraps up with a final note on how far this technology can be stretched and how as a researcher you could contribute to this technology and address some of the critical research problems that we are facing today.

As is with any course, this course is also backed by Udemy’s 30 day money back guarantee.

If you’re not happy for any reason you will get a full refund.

So take this course today, and dive deeper into Gene Editing technologies.

Who this course is for:

  • This course is suitable for students and researchers pursuing biotechnology and allied disciplines who want to gain insights about gene editing.
  • This course is not for absolute beginners who are looking for a typical college like curriculum and also not for experts in the field who are looking for advanced knowledge .
