130 Biomolecular Engineering Laboratory
9 units (1-5-3); third term
Prerequisites: ChE 63 ab, ChE 101 (concurrently) or instructor’s permission.
Design, construction, and characterization of engineered biological systems that will be implemented in
bacteria, yeast, and cell-free systems. Research problems will fall into the general areas of biomolecular
engineering and synthetic biology. Emphasis will be on projects that apply rational and evolutionary design strategies
toward engineering biological systems that exhibit dynamic, logical, or programmed behaviors. Instructors: Smolke, Vicic.
