Course Descriptions

The biology program will produce biologists with the chemistry, mathematics, and physics background needed to solve biotechnological problems in the coming decades. Those students wishing to strengthen their engineering skills can earn the area minor in biomedical engineering.

BIO 352 - Synthetic Biology Laboratory

  • Credit Hours: 4C (studio format, 4 days x 3 hrs)
  • Term Available: Su1
  • Prerequisites: Instructor Consent
  • Corequisites: None

Open to all majors. This project-based studio laboratory course focuses on the fundamental laboratory techniques employed in the synthetic biology laboratory. Relevant background and theory will be discussed and applied in the hands-on learning of core laboratory techniques. In practice, students will build and test novel genetic devices designed to advance the current International Genetically Engineered Machine Competition (iGEM) Team project. Significant contribution to the project will earn students membership on the Rose-Hulman iGEM team and attribution in iGEM competition materials.
