Synthetic Biology MOOC Teaches How to Make DIY DNA

March 22, 2017

A massive open online course (MOOC) on synthetic biology (Synthetic Biology 1) teaches students to read, write, and create custom DNA sequences. The course is presented by The Center for Research and Interdisciplinarity (CRI), which is located in Paris. The MOOC teaches the theoretical and applied tools from biology, math, and computer science that are used in synbio labs around the world. It will also introduce key questions of ethics and safety that drive the global conversation on the responsible use of a new technology.
