Intro to Synthetic Biology

This course is for first year students and is intended to teach them how to think like a scientist and get them excited about biology. By no means is it a comprehensive Synthetic Biology course; rather, students explore basic molecular biology in the first third of the course, work through actual synthetic biology research in the second third, and apply their knowledge of this field to ethical issues in the last third.
