Take Courses

We offer classes in variety of biotech and synthetic biology related topics for the public. We've had multiple runs of the synthetic biology and biotech crashcourses aimed at total beginners, where students were taught to extract and sequence their own mitochondial DNA and clone their own CCR5 co-receptor coding regions into bacteria. If you're interested in attending the classes please check the blog or inquire at info(at)

We offer single day workshops on variety of topics as well. Past topics included bioart experiment with slime molds, lecture on human microbiome and anthropological genetics! Inquire at info(at) for future events, or check the blog for future events!
