BIO 396 - Synthetic Biology: Engineering Life

This emerging interdisciplinary field intersects biology, mathematics, physics, computer science, and engineering. Real-world problems are identified, and student-driven projects are performed using network modeling in order to make predictions and test assumptions, and then molecular biology and genetic engineering laboratory techniques are used to redesign genetic circuits in single-celled organisms.

Prerequisite(s): MAT 122 or MAT 150 and completion of LEP: Natural World I and II.

4 credit(s).

Last Term Offered: Fall 2017
