The Odin Biohack 101 Class @ gasigaso kitchen
Welcome to the Odin Biohacking 101 Class in gene-editing discussion and hands-on session from 9.1.-24.4.2019 Swiss Edition. This is an online class accessible around the globe. You need to provide certain equipment and tools for a start.
Four months of remote cooking, learning, sewing for future gatherings. Various locations in and around Zurich and other spaces across Switzerland.
The class will be remote. You can do it from anywhere. If you order threw ODIN, Josia will send you one box of reagents and supplies a month for four months along with instructions and readings. To help you learn the basics of genetic engineering.
Bimonthly live classes and group chats where The ODIN teach you about DNA, RNA, Proteins and how to engineer organisms, including humans!
This class will take a few hours a week to perform experiments that can be done at your own pace .

Assignements and Reading Schedule:
All participants for the Swiss Edition welcome. contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org participation is for free
This course will go from cells to DNA to protein. It will give students a basic understanding of how to genetically edit cells and what that means. The course also provides an extensive hands-on component so that students by the end should be able to genetically modify cells on their own and understand physically what that constitutes.
Students who complete this course successfully will be able to: Use laboratory equipment like scales and pipettes Understand sterile technique and antibiotic usage Culture bacteria and yeast Genetically modify bacteria and yeast Use CRISPR and design their own CRISPR experiments
Required Texts, Materials, or Equipment
Molecular Biology of the Cell Book Snapgene Viewer http://www.snapgene.com/products/snapgene_viewer/ VMD https://www.ks.uiuc.edu/Research/vmd/ All physical materials are included in price of class Weekly Work/Homework Each week there will be assigned readings and experiments to perform. They should take no more than a few hours investment each week. Major Assignments: Descriptions At the end of each month we will ask you to write a one page summary of an experiment that you wish to perform to understand a topic you are interested covered during that month. Course-Specific Support or Supplementary Instruction The internet has a wealth of information on the topics presented in class. If you don’t understand something search it out. If you still don’t understand it then ask. When trying to access papers behind paywalls use http://sci-hub.tw for free access to most any paper
