Past Reading

SynBio @ Caltech

  • We are a journal club at Caltech, getting graduate students together to discuss synthetic biology and metabolic engineering.


  • First meeting 1/19/2011, 4pm, location TBA.

Weekly Topics

We'll start with a broad introduction to popular topics in synthetic biology, then figure out the logistics for future weeks - this will most likely involve rotating responsibility for presenting material each week.

  • Week 1: Introduction to Synthetic Biology (Emzo and Joe)
    • Synthetic biology: new engineering rules for an emerging discipline. Andrianantoandro E, Basu S, Karig DK and Weiss R. Mol Sys Bio. 2:2006.0028 [1]
  • Week 2: Transcriptional Circuits (Emzo)
  • Week 3: Oscillators & Dynamics (Emzo)
  • Week 4: RNA Based Regulation (Joe)
  • Week 5: Multiple Genes - Gene Network Engineering (Joe)
  • Week 6: Multiple Cells - Quorum Sensing and Cell-Cell Communication (Joe)
