BIOL 306L - Projects in Synthetic Molecular Biology

(2.00)
This laboratory course will introduce students to Synthetic Biology. Students will use a laboratory strain of E. coli to genetically modify the bacteria in ways that will increase our understanding of gene regulation, enzymatic activities, or genetic circuits. Students will familiarize themselves with the techniques needed to modify E.coli. Students will design their own synthetic biology project and construct their synthetic biology project (a modified E.coli strain of their design) during the course of the semester. This course stresses creativity, teamwork, and innovation and introduces students to thinking about biology concepts and skills in the context of entrepreneurship.
