Applications and implications of synthetic biology
Bio Academy Program is a 6-month program where students learn the applications and implications of synthetic biology. Its first version started when Harvard Professor George Church made a variant on the Fab Academy curriculum, focussing on How to Grow (almost) Anything instead of the How to Make course.
Classes included DNA nanostructures, CRISPR-CAS9, FISSEQ, open source hardware for Bio Labs, 3D bioprinting, synthetic minimal cells and much more.
This course ran in a Distributed (through out more than +10 Labs around the world) way for 4 years, from 2015 to 2018, and currently runs locally at MIT: MAS.S61- How To Grow (Almost) Anything
We’re preparing a new version of Distributed Bio Academy…more info soon!
George Church is Professor of Genetics at Harvard Medical School and Director of PersonalGenomes.org, which provides the world’s only open-access information on human Genomic, Environmental & Trait data (GET).
