Synthetic biology involves redesigning biological systems such as enzymes for useful purposes by engineering them to have new abilities and functions. It can be used to find solutions in medicine, manufacturing, and agriculture. The Graduate Certificate in Synthetic Biology program allows students with STEM bachelor’s degrees to understand the fundamental concepts in synthetic biology and prepare them for their future careers related to this ever-expanding field.
