Prereqs: 18.02, 7.01x

Units: 2-8-2

Schedule: M12-1:30, W12,  Room 68-121

Instructor:  Prof. Timothy Lu, timlu@mit.edu
Synthetic biology is an emerging engineering discipline that aims to design new functions in biological systems. This lab-centric course aims to give students a hands-on experience building and modeling synthetic circuits from the ground up to implement systems such as feedforward loops and logic devices. Successful completion of this course should prepare students for independent synthetic biology research. Course enrollment is limited.  12 EDPs.
