Zero to Genetic Engineering Hero is made to provide you with a first glimpse of the inner-workings of a cell. It further focuses on skill-building for genetic engineering and the Biology-as-a-Technology mindset (BAAT). This book is designed and written for hands-on learners who have little knowledge of biology or genetic engineering. This book focuses on the reader mastering the necessary skills of genetic engineering while learning about cells and how they function. The goal of this book is to take you from no prior biology and genetic engineering knowledge toward a basic understanding of how a cell functions, and how they are engineered, all while building the skills needed to do so.
Dr. Justin Pahara has more than a decade of bioengineering experience as well as extensive knowledge of synthetic biology tech, markets, and work-flows. Justin studied Synthetic Biology at the University of Cambridge (PhD, MoTI in JBS), Singularity University (GSP-10; Google Fellow), iGEM (2007, 2008), the University of Alberta (B.Sc., M.Sc.).Julie Legault is a designer-entrepreneur from the city of Montreal. Over the last decade, Julie has worked in design research, innovation and the maker movement. Julie began her career earning a B.F.A. (Design & Computation Art) and a Graduate Certificate (Digital Technologies in Design Art) from Concordia University in Montreal. Julie furthered her skills and knowledge by completing a Master of Art in the School of Materials at the Royal College of Art in London, United Kingdom and a Master of Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Media Lab. Grateful for her early access to computing in her childhood thanks to a pioneering mother, Julie has since dedicated herself to translating complex technologies for beginners through teaching and applied design.
