Ever wonder how human insulin can be made from E.coli? Since the 1980s, biotech companies have been making medical drugs using biotechnology. These companies use living cells to produce proteins, antibodies, and nucleic acids for therapeutic purposes. This course takes students through a biotechnology “campaign” where they will transform E.coli into a green fluorescent protein factory. Students work in teams, simulating a start-up biotech company.  Teams will attempt to optimize expression of proteins, run industrial-sized fermentors, perform protein analysis and separations, and purify their own biopharmaceuticals, on time and under budget. This course focuses on the basics of recombinant DNA technology, as applied to biopharmaceutical manufacturing, in a classroom setting. Students will work through a “production campaign” including all key steps of manufacturing a protein product. Course Prerequisite: Students must complete high school biology and chemistry before enrolling in this course.

At the root of contemporary global environmental and social collapse is a world view and a social system based on human domination of nature and of each other. There is now a growing recognition that environmental sustainability and human well-being require a shift from the prevailing system of domination and extremism to a global consciousness and a socioeconomic system based on interdependence and partnership. In this course we examine the contribution that the teachings of the Buddha can make to this global scientific and ethical discourse and the movements for psycho-social transformation. This interdisciplinary course draws upon a broad range of fields including global political economy, sociology, philosophy, ecology and Asian Studies. The course will provide an overview of interrelated contemporary crises of climate change, economic inequality and violent conflict; introduce the ethics and basic philosophical concepts of Buddhism, such as, impermanence, interdependence, non-violence and the Middle Path: explore ecological and ‘socially engaged Buddhism’ in Asia; and engage students in the discourse and efforts for personal and collective change.
