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.

Assignment for Coronavirus dianostic kit design

The homework assigned through the files follows a presentation on qPCR. The goal of the assignment is for the students to get primer pairs that do not bind to human DNA or the SARS Coronavirus that caused the 2003 epidemic. It is easy to assess through Primer-Blast or the UCSC in-silico PCR tool (links provided above).

In-classroom activity for genome alignment of different strains of viruses in the Coronaviridae family

This is an activity that took place in an Advanced Genetics class that meets in a computer lab. The activity aims to construct a phylogenetic tree of different Coronaviruses, including a few strains of SARS-CoV2. The sequences were pulled from the Virus Pathogen Database and Genbank. Since the activity initially took place in mid-February, there are a lot more available sequences in the databases, while at least one of the sequences included has been retracted. The homework in the end is another application of the skillset the students acquired through the activity, and can be modified based on the course's objectives.
