APPLICATIONS OF SYNTHETIC BIOLOGY AND CHEMICAL GENETICS IN MEDICINE


This course will explore how metabolic pathways are currently being re-engineered in microorganisms to produce drugs that are otherwise difficult to manufacture. We will also investigate how drug targets are being identified using newly developed chemical genetic screening methods. The impact of both approaches on medicine will be evaluated.
