DIY DNA: Free online course teaches you how to make your own GMOs

| | March 20, 2017

Have you found yourself sitting in your kitchen lately wondering how to make bread, cheese or yogurt? How about genetically modified organisms?

A new online course called Synthetic Biology One will teach you how to do all of that while teaching you how to sequence DNA.

The courses are presented by the Center for Research and Interdisciplinarity and sponsorship keeps the courses free for anybody to access.

Synthetic Biology One covers subjects such as Biology and Mathematics and will teach you to read, write and edit DNA sequences. Can we all just take a moment to appreciate how awesome the internet is and how this course would not be possible without it?

The subjects are presented in units with video lessons guiding students through the material. You will also be required to take a quiz at the end of each unit.

You can register at Synthetic Biology One online right now but enrollment has not yet begun as the course is still in beta according to the official Twitter account.

That said, it’s worth registering now to get notified when enrollment does begin.
