Description

Build a Genome Network (BAG) is a course-based undergraduate research experience in which students create synthetic genomes. Pioneered at Johns Hopkins University in 2007, BAG was integral to the international effort to create the first synthetic eukaryotic genome (the Synthetic Yeast Project) and helped initiate the teaching of synthetic biology to undergraduates. This interdisciplinary course-based research experience allows students to learn concepts and techniques in genomics, bioinformatics, molecular biology, and synthetic biology while participating in a cutting-edge research project.
