What you'll learn in this unique class:

Join us for this hands-on introductory lab class and discover the foundations of modern biotechnology. Over four consecutive evenings, we'll learn about the basics of DNA science and laboratory techniques in a welcoming, hands-on environment. 

After learning about the history of biotechnology and the structure of DNA, we'll get in the lab. You'll also learn how some of the most significant developments and biggest legends in biotechnology have been associated with romantic get-away weekends, surfing, international rivalry, political intrigue, and almost 170,000 years of human history (!).

Course topics include: 
  • polymerase chain reaction (PCR)
  • Gel electrophoresis
  • DNA sequencing
  • Bioinformatics
  • Comparative genomics
  • DNA editing (using restriction enzymes and ligases)
  • Uploading DNA circuits (using bacterial transformation and plating techniques)
  • Synthetic biology (using modular analysis and design of DNA circuits)
  • Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Bio
and more! 

No prior experience in biology or laboratory techniques is required: be sure to bring your enthusiasm to learn!

Please wear closed toed shoes for the lab safety protocol.
