group of bacterial DNA sequences that are used to defend against viruses. The system can be altered and used to target and modify specific gene sequences.
use of a large number of single-stranded DNA pieces attached to a microscope slide in a grid pattern to determine gene expression
anchor and starting point for DNA polymerase to add free nucleotides to a growing strand of DNA in the lab
technique that separates DNA and other molecules based on their size using electric charge
protein common in jellyfish that glows green in the presence of ultraviolet light and is often inserted into other organisms
small, circular piece of bacterial DNA that replicates on its own and can be transferred between cells
gene that encodes a protein that can be easily tracked and, when attached to another gene or sequence of genes, the reporter gene will alert researchers to their expression
place on a DNA strand that contains specific sequences of nucleotides and can be recognized by restriction enzymes
