The Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory courses in biology are a widely known as truly one-of-a-kind experiences. Participants have come away with a new depth of knowledge and a reinvigorated excitement for exploring research beyond their comfort zones. I and three other faculty in synthetic biology, David Savage, Julius Lucks, and Jeff Tabor, have been invited to run a new course this year. We’re already getting the equipment and materials together to help 16 invited biohackers to design, test, and build genetic circuits. It’s shaping up nicely and we’re very excited about it.
We have a great line-up of speakers: Adam Arkin (University of California, Berkeley), Michelle Chang (University of California Berkeley), Andy Ellington (University of Texas at Austin), Justin Gallivan (Emory University), Daniel Gibson (J. Craig Venter Institute), Michael Jewett (Northwestern University), Eric Klavins (University of Washington), Richard Murray (California Institute of Technology), Pam Silver (Harvard Medical School), Chris Voigt (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), Ron Weiss (Massachusetts Institute of Technology).
