Weekly topics / Experiments

wk2: Bio Design / Plasmid digest

Theory class: George Church spoke about the capacity to modify biological material/organisms. Lab Task: Design and verify restriction digest of a circular DNA plasmid by gel electrophoresis. Compare your experimental result with what you would predict from the plasmid map. Link to weekly page: http://bio.fabcloud.io/2017/bio_design.html
