*For those enrolled in the nanocourse, the course project will be a short proposal (800–1000 words plus figures) describing a synthetic biology project that can be completed by a graduate student or postdoctoral fellow in three years or less. The proposals, in Adobe PDF form, must be posted on this wiki page by noon on Thursday, 2007 October 25.

*To see some potential project ideas, please browse through the project and brainstorming pages of former iGEM teams. If you decide to adopt one of those ideas, you need to propose a significant improvement or alteration that represents value added to the original idea. Be sure to credit the sources for your inspirations. Here are some example links (everyone, please feel free to add more or to reorganize):

Course Description

Synthetic biology explores the design rules for building artificial behavior of biomolecular systems through cycles of construction and comparison of intended versus observed behaviors. The ability to synthesize biomimetic behavior is an important benchmark for biological understanding. This course will introduce strategies for engineering cellular and molecular systems and will explore current and future applications for synthetic biology approaches.
