Bio Design: Synthetic Biology

Saba Ghole
1 / 1

The fields of life science, engineering, computer science, and design are merging to create the exciting new field of synthetic biology. Within this field, we are able to adapt and re-engineer living organisms and systems from inexpensive and renewable materials. The chemicals produced have the potential to create new foundations for medicine, vaccines, energy, fuel, food, construction, architecture, and even environmental areas such as forestry. What type of genetic system would you create to purify contaminated drinking water after a hurricane? Or deal with air pollution after a forest fire? Perhaps a DNA drug-delivery system to treat viral infections in humans? Or even a bacteria nightlight?

In this studio, you’ll learn the basics of synthetic biology and how to use the combined power of biology and engineering to address real world problems. In your experiments,  learn how to use chassis, system, device, redundancy, gene expression, DNA synthesis, and more. We’ll experiment, test ideas, learn from our failures and successes, and be a part of advancing a new and emerging field!
