Building upon the tradition of ‘How to Make (Almost) Anything,’ we are offering, for the first time, ‘How to Grow (Almost) Anything,’ a course to teach experienced bio-enthusiasts and those new to the life sciences alike skills at the cutting edge of bioengineering and synthetic biology.
The course consists of three major modules: (I) synthetic biology bootcamp; (ii) biofabrication and imaging; and (iii) genome engineering. Each week will feature a lecture from an expert in their respective domains and hands-on wet lab skills development, with topics including:
Permission of the instructor. While experience with biology or biotechnology is not required, we aim to curate a group of diverse students that, collectively, have wet lab experience, hardware and making experience (e.g., having taken 'How to Make (Almost) Anything'), and other creative or technical experience (e.g., design, art).
All prospective students must submit an application for the course found here.
