RSVP for Basic Genetic Engineering
Come learn the basics of genetic engineering and synthetic biology. We will start very simple with an overview of DNA, the central dogma of molecular biology, and some pipetting skills before working our way up to some hands on gene editing in E.coli. You will have the chance to create a molecular machine that responds to some stimuli and produces a response (think E.coli that smell like mint in the day time and oranges at night). No biology or engineering background required!
