Splice ​DNA ​together ​and ​create ​your ​own ​glowing ​bacteria! ​We ​are ​entering ​the ​era ​of biotechnology ​where ​designer ​organisms ​are ​being ​created ​to ​solve ​the ​world’s ​biggest problems ​like ​hunger, ​clean ​water, ​and ​pollution. ​Unfortunately, not ​everything ​always ​goes as ​planned….what ​happens ​when ​we ​must ​decide ​to ​wipe ​out ​an ​entire ​species ​to ​save ​our own? ​Dive ​into ​the ​world ​of ​synthetic ​biology ​by ​learning ​microbiology ​and ​genetic engineering techniques in the lab, as well as ​the ​ethics ​needed ​to ​make ​sure ​we ​use ​this ​technology ​for ​good ​and ​not evil!
