HTGAA is a Synthetic Biology Program directed by George Church, professor of Genetics at Harvard medical school. The HTGAA is a part of the growing Academy of (almost) Anything, or the academany. Since I am based in Cambridge, I am conducting this online course through Street Bio, a community bio lab in the basement of EMW Bookstore founded by synthetic biologist David Kong. Every Wednesday we meet from all over the world to go over homework and hear the next lecture. On Sundays, the Street Bio group meets to do homework, build out the lab, and do miscellaneous biohacking things. If you're in Cambridge, please stop by and join us :)
