UC Berkeley announces Synthetic Biology degree concentration
UC Berkeley's top-ranked Bioengineering Department announced the creation of a Synthetic Biology concentration in Bioengineering. The concentration represents one of the few US degree specializations in synthetic biology. It also represents an important step toward SynBERC's strategic educational goal to spawn a national synthetic biology curriculum.
The concentration program was developed in consultation with SynBERC Principal Investigators Adam Arkin and Christopher Anderson, SynBERC Affiliate Investigator John Dueber, and Department Lecturer Terry Johnson, all from UC Berkeley's Bioengineering Department. (In April, Johnson received the 2010 Golden Apple, UC Berkeley 's student award for most outstanding teacher.)
