A project-based introduction to the engineering of synthetic biological systems.  Throughout the term, students develop projects that are responsive to real-world problems of their choosing, and whose solutions depend on biological technologies. Lectures, discussions, and exercises will introduce (1) components and control of prokaryotic and eukaryotic behavior, (2) DNA synthesis, standards, and abstraction in biological engineering, (3) issues of human practice, including (a) biological safety, (b) security, (c) ownership, sharing, & innovation, and (d) ethics.

Welcome to 20.020! A project-based introduction to the engineering of synthetic biological systems. In this subject, you will have an opportunity to develop projects that are responsive to real-world problems, using solutions that depend on biological technologies. Through lectures, design studio, and recitations you will be introduced to

  • (1) components and control of prokaryotic and eukaryotic behavior,
  • (2) DNA synthesis, standards, and abstraction in biological engineering,
  • (3) issues of human practice, including (a) biological safety, (b) security, (c) ownership, sharing, & innovation, and (d) ethics.
    We hope this subject will provide an engaging introduction for would-be biological engineers as well as a foundational framework for anyone interested in the responsible and reliable programming of genetic material.
