Current Research Topics in Synthetic Biology 1

This module will build on concepts discussed throughout the course. Lectures on Systems and Control, Retroactivity and Scalability, Noise and Stochasticity will build to describe how Synthetic Circuits can be built in mammalian cells and the insights we can garner from evolution regarding system design will be discussed. Delivery will be by conventional lectures, discussion sessions, reference to the literature and MATLAB/pen and paper exercises. (Duration: one week)
