BioBuilder® Bioengineering for a Changing World: Class 3: Building a Living Sensor Video

(in stock)


Grade 9–College. This video lecture integrates the engineering idea of abstraction into the construction of a living sensor that can detect environmental contaminants. It looks at how engineers built such a system using a standardized cellular chassis, a catalog of necessary DNA components, and with lab techniques that allowed their designed DNA program to be inserted into living cells. The "in the news" portion of the workshop explores how our own cells are similarly engineering themselves in response to environmental challenges such as bacteria and viruses.
