Sunday, February 10, 2013 from 8:30 AM to 12:00 PM (PST)
- Engineer the genome of a bacteria, E. coli, by splicing in an engineered protein from a jellyfish, Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP), that glows under a special light
- Use engineered E. coli as biosensors
- Learn the actual hands-on lab techniques to make this happen.
- Discuss applications and uses of GFP, cell- & bio-printers, uses of synthetic biology for biosensors
- Mad Scientist Class Photo
- Genetic Engineering Certificate
- Photos of your genetically engineered creations
- Refreshments: snacks and coffee
