- Gabriel Wu 20:15, 21 January 2013 (EST): I like how last year's topics are grouped together by week. I know this may not work as well with the format of the class this year, but should we try to organize weeks in some meaningful way? For example, this week's topics include the iGEM registry, DNA assembly and Bioethics. It's hard to connect Bioethics and DNA assembly into a coherent topic.
- Jeffrey E. Barrick 20:37, 21 January 2013 (EST):I had a hard time coming up with a system to do that with the topics I wanted to cover this year, but if you have an idea about how to rearrange the syllabus so it's more of a logical progression of topics, it would be great to hear it.
