HTGAA course

From the official webpage: Bio Academy is a Synthetic Biology Program directed by George Church, professor of Genetics at Harvard medical school. The Bio Academy is a part of the growing Academy of (almost) Anything, or the Academany.

It's a 15 week experimental course covering the major Synthetic Biology applications today.

2017 is the first year that the course is being taken by students at Hackuarium. The course is being followed by Daniel Hernandez and Thomas Jordan.

Weekly topics / Experiments

wk2: Plasmid digest

DNA modification is fundamental to design in synthetic biology. For this week's assignment, you will learn to read DNA sequence files and see physical changes you will make to DNA molecules.

Lab Task: Verify restriction digest of a circular DNA plasmid by gel electrophoresis. Compare your experimental result with what you would predict from the plasmid map.

The protocol designed for this experiment is: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Rs1ElrSjuLlmIEhpxZ6856ivZJBkXE4BnWnDYquZZ0w/edit?usp=sharing
