Hot on the heels of our summer molecular biology crashcourse, Dr.Oliver Medvedik is ready to offer the summer synthetic biology crashcourse for the cute little inner mad scientists in all of you.
Do you feel like there’s something missing from this summer? Do you often stare into empty space with inexplicable yearning? Is there a gaping void in your heart that can only be filled by learning how to engineer living organisms? Of course you do.
Well you’re in luck! Genspace NYC is about to begin our summer run of synthetic biology crashcourse! Read on to find out more about Dr.Oliver Medvedik’s bioengineering course at our community biotech lab.
==========================Intro to Synthetic Biology Course==========================
Saturdays, July 16th, 23rd and 30th; $300 for three 4-hour sessions. Two (2) spots will be reserved for students, priced at $150. First come, first served!
Synthetic biology is the science of engineering living organisms as if they were biological machines. Taught by Dr. Oliver Medvedik from Harvard University, you’ll learn how to manipulate life using standardized genetic parts. These genetic sequences serve as building blocks in the fabrication of genetic “circuits,” previously unseen in nature. Among many applications, this rapidly maturing technology is currently being harnessed to cheaply create life saving drugs and bio-fuels to reduce dependence on petroleum based fuel sources.
As part of this very hands-on-course, we’ll create micro-organisms that smell like bananas, produce colored pigments or emit light in response to stimuli like skin-burning doses of ultraviolet radiation!
