What you'll learn in this unique class:

Join us for this hands-on introductory lab class and discover the foundations of modern biotechnology. Over four consecutive evenings, we'll learn about the basics of DNA science and laboratory techniques in a welcoming, hands-on environment. 

After learning about the history of biotechnology and the structure of DNA, we'll get in the lab. You'll also learn how some of the most significant developments and biggest legends in biotechnology have been associated with romantic get-away weekends, surfing, international rivalry, political intrigue, and almost 170,000 years of human history (!).

Course topics include: 
  • polymerase chain reaction (PCR)
  • Gel electrophoresis
  • DNA sequencing
  • Bioinformatics
  • Comparative genomics
  • DNA editing (using restriction enzymes and ligases)
  • Uploading DNA circuits (using bacterial transformation and plating techniques)
  • Synthetic biology (using modular analysis and design of DNA circuits)
  • Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Bio
and more! 

No prior experience in biology or laboratory techniques is required: be sure to bring your enthusiasm to learn!

Please wear closed toed shoes for the lab safety protocol.

We offer a full refund for cancellations up to 7 days before the first class date.

My 14yo daughter is interested in taking this course. Is there a discount for her as a student? Thanks.

Hi Alex! The price for students is $150 and the next class for students is on August 6. Kindly check the dates on the class page to see the schedule. Just click on "Next Start Dates" and the page will scroll down to the available dates and just select August 6 to reflect the student's price of $150. Hope this helps!
Answer from Alex M.
Thanks, for the update, Brenda. We are away in August and interested in her doing the evening sessions for the week in July. It looks as though that is open for age 14+. Can she not join that session? Many thanks! Alex
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse Staff
Hi Alex! The July 9 class for both adults and students are already sold out, I'm sorry. The next class will be in August.
Answer from Alex M.
Ah, okay. Bummer! We’ll look for a student-rate class for the fall. Thanks Alex
