Synbio is a diverse field with diverse applications, and the different contexts (e.g., gain-of-function research, biofuels) raise different ethical and governance challenges. The objective of this course is to increase learners’ awareness and understanding of ethical and policy/governance issues that arise in the design, conduct and application of synthetic biology. The course will begin with a short history of recombinant DNA technology and how governance of that science developed and evolved, and progress through a series of areas of application of synbio.

fun and interesting course. very well taught by somebody obviously knowledgeable. Thanks so much.
Highly thought-provoking. One of the most interesting classes I have taken on Coursera.
pretty good class. kind of technical but gives one some good stuff to think about
Great course! Learn a lot of new information about governance in Synbio.
Is financial aid available?
What is the most important thing I'll learn if I take this class?
