BIOCH 481 - Design and Construction of Synthetic Biological Systems I

This course explores both the opportunities and challenges of synthetic life by providing a practical and theoretical introduction to this new discipline through lectures, class discussion, and hands on computational exercises. Topics covered include: natural vs artificial design of genetic circuits, and the theoretical aspects of gene and gene network construction using molecular biology techniques. Prerequisites: BIOCH 330 (or equivalent), registration in the Faculties of Science or Engineering, and a minimum GPA 3.3 (or consent of the department).

Fall Term 2020
BIOCH 482 - Design and Construction of Synthetic Biological Systems II

This course expands on BIOCH 481, providing opportunity for further skill development in analysis of the function of natural and engineered gene and metabolic networks. These computational labs are intended to explore the concepts applied in computer modeling during the design, testing, and optimization steps required to create biological model systems. Prerequisites: BIOCH 481.
