- Global transposon mutagenesis and a minimal Mycoplasma genome, Hutchison et al. URL
- Refactoring bacteriophage T7, Chan et al. URL
- Combining two genomes into one cell, Itaya et al. URL
- Adventures in Synthetic Biology (comic strip, to be made available the week of class)
- Is there a difference between a "modelable" genome, and a "minimal" genome? What about a "modular" organism?
- Do we know enough about the parts of biological systems to put things back together?
- Is there a difference between "constructing" something, versus "creating" something?
- Is it easier, better, faster (etc) to understand something by tearing it apart? Or, by putting it back together?
- <add your question here!>
