Ever wonder if you could re-program cells to do whatever you wanted? With synthetic biology, the possibilities are endless!

Synthetic biology provides a unique opportunity to combine knowledge from electrical engineering, biological engineering, chemical engineering, and biology. In this class, through a combination of lectures and work in the lab you will learn many of the skills necessary for a UROP in biological engineering. This hands-on class will take you through the process of constructing DNA circuits, and by the end of IAP you will create an inducible baterial lamp!
