Course overview

  • Graduate level seminar focusing on in-silico design pipelines for nucleic acid- and protein-based molecular machinery and programmable molecular systems. Students are mentored to produce substantial midterm and final group design projects.
  • No formal prerequisites. Projects are tailored to each student's strengths and interests.


Example topics for final design project

  • Artificial chemotactic swimmers
  • Nonequilibrium networks of nano-machines mimicking dynamic instability in the cytoskeleton
  • Nucleic acid logic automata responsive to microRNAs in serum
  • Self-assembled solar energy harvester based on bio-inorganic nano-antennae for uv-vis
  • Systematic debugging of DNA labeling chemistries by atomic-resolution TEM imaging of DNA origami
  • Light-controlled transcriptional activation and repression through rational molecular design
  • Directed evolution of tissue engineering scaffold nano-materials
  • Programmable multistep chemical synthesis by templating on nanostructures
  • Ultra-sensitive molecular signal processing for synthetic biology
  • Synthetic nanostructure - virus conjugates
  • Nano-breadboards for probing electron transport in proteins
  • Replication of information in synthetic crystals
  • Etc.
