This is the start of Counter Culture Labs biohacking bootcamp. Learn all the basic science and lab skills needed to create your own synthetic biology project. Get badges as you gain lab skills and discover the wonders of bioengineering.
Although this is a three month series of courses, each class can be taken separately. If you have ever been curious about genetic engineering, wanted to become a scientist or just want to impress your friends...this is your chance!
This lecture will cover macromolecules, parts of the cell, a brief overview of the phenological tree of life and a deeper dive into protein structure and folding. We will also have a class activity to familiarize students with the online software and databases we will be using. A computer is recommended, but not required.
Looking forward to seeing everyone on Thursday :)
