exciting developments in this rapidly emerging field."
In this workshop we will be building our own new semi-synthetic genome! Join us as we apply synthetic biology techniques to create a viral genome (don’t worry, we’re working on viruses that only infect bacteria!) In addition to lab work, we will be discussing this brave new frontier in biological engineering- how this technology is currently being used to redesign cells and systems, and how society should respond to and regulate this new field. For those who have taken Build-a-Gene before, there will be some familiar techniques but there will be new techniques in viral replication and genome editing as well this year. Join us as we learn to synthesize new genomes from scratch!"
The course will take place between 9 am to 1 pm over the course of 5 days. The days are Aug 8, 15, 22, 29th, and Sept 5. While we encourage you to take all sessions in the series, each session can stand on its own. You do not need to commit to all the sessions to enjoy the experience. There are no prerequisites.
