ID : 1003   
« back to classes page
Humans have directed evolution since the advent of farming, however, emerging methods in biotechnology have dramatically increased human control over the genome. This course will act as an introduction to modern bioengineering methods and real world examples of this science at work. We will cover cloning, gene sequencing, PCR and the CRISPR-Cas system before diving into current and upcoming potential uses for this technology. We will close by discussing the modern ethical implications of these techniques.
