6.129 Biological Circuit Engineering Laboratory

Class Info

Students assemble individual genes and regulatory elements into larger-scale circuits; they experimentally characterize these circuits in yeast cells using quantitative techniques, including flow cytometry, and model their results computationally. Emphasizes concepts and techniques to perform independent experimental and computational synthetic biology research. Discusses current literature and ongoing research in the field of synthetic biology. Instruction and practice in oral and written communication provided. Enrollment limited.

This class has 7.01x, and 18.02 as prerequisites.

6.129 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by R. Weiss and T. Lu.

Lecture occurs 12:00 PM to 13:00 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 68-121.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This class counts as a CI-M.
