UC Berkeley BioE 140L Synthetic Biology Lab
SynBio Bootcamp is a laboratory course designed as an introduction to research in Synthetic Biology, a ground-up approach to genetic engineering with applications in bioenergy, healthcare, materials and chemical production. In this course, we will design and execute a real research project. Each student will be responsible for designing and constructing components for the group project and then performing experiments to analyze the system. In addition to lab work, we will have lectures on methods and design concepts in synthetic biology including an introduction to Biobricks, new Biocad software tools, automation tools, gene synthesis, directed evolution, practical molecular biology and biochemistry.
Instructor: J. Christopher Anderson
