Genome Science select Topics: A Wet-Lab-Based Learning Approach 

This course is specifically designed for home-schoolers seeking an immersive, experiential learning opportunity in the biomedical life sciences.

Learning opportunities will include the following:

  • Genes, DNA, and Central Dogma

  • RNA and protein synthesis

  • Genetics foundations

  • Genetics and genomics experiments in the wet-lab, including gene editing

  • Amplifying and visualizing DNA

  • Bioinformatics analysis

  • Immune system physiology

  • Applications: Intro to cell-based immunotherapies (therapeutics or diagnostics)

While the course will be an intense learning experience, it will also be very interesting and fun. Students will have the opportunity to undertake experiments that we cannot include in our regular once weekly curricula--due to the amount of time required. (Some sessions may run beyond the two-hours scheduled but will be discussed in advance to make sure that the timing is feasible.)
