Course Description: Synthetic biology is the engineering of organisms to create new abilities or redesign existing systems that will help solve problems in the fields of medicine, sustainability, manufacturing, agriculture, and more. iGEM at Berkeley is a synthetic biology-focused club that provides students the opportunity to develop their knowledge of synthetic biology and participate in student-run hands-on research projects, both in the wetlab and drylab. Offered through Berkeley’s iGEM club, this course will teach students hands-on wetlab techniques through the basic cloning workflow. Students will learn about the science behind basic lab techniques in lecture and perform those skills in the next week’s lab.
