Zero to Genetic Engineering Hero:
The beginner's guide to programming bacteria at home, in the classroom, & in the makerspace

**See a blog article with in depth details about  Zero to Genetic Engineering Hero**

**Scheduled to be in print Thursday October 18th, 2018 and shipping thereafter**

The world's first beginner's guide to genetic engineering is here! A combination of both real-world hands-on activities and fundamentals, this book is written with many levels of depth so you can choose how deep you want to learn. Are you a hands-on or visual learner? Each Chapter starts with one or more hands-on exercises to get you grounded and help you better anchor concepts. The second half of the chapters include "Fundamentals", which go more in-depth into the subject of the chapter, relating back to the hands-on exercises you completed. 

Zero to Genetic Engineering Hero makes use of Amino Labs' ecosystem so that you can do real scientific exercises at home, in the classroom, or in a maker space - and most importantly, you don't any prior knowledge of genetic engineering. This fun and engaging hands-on approach to learning about genetic engineering is not to disappoint. 

If you are not ready to complete the hands-on exercises but want to simply familiarize yourself, your students or your family with biology and genetic engineering, Zero to Genetic Engineering Hero is written with many analogies to help explain concepts and includes more than 130 color illustrations and breakout discussions that recommend web search terms to guide you on the internet. Unlike other textbook options that offer information, Zero to Genetic Engineering Hero offers a narrative that makes learning the information more interesting. 

Zero to Genetic Engineering Hero is the most cutting-edge and accessible technical book about genetic engineering book written. This book was edited by teenagers, aged 12-14, so we're confident that it is accessible to the non-expert. 

Beta Edition

“The book, the DNA Playground, and my centrifuge gave me an understanding of what genetic engineering is and how you can program bacteria to make things. It was so exciting that I’m asking my Science teacher to start an iGEM team next year that will compete in the High School league,” Pau, 12 year old, Washington, DC, USA.

  • Genetic Engineers’ Pledge
  • Chapter 1 - Isolating DNA, the Blueprints of Life
  • Chapter 2 - Setting up your Genetic Engineering Hero Space
  • Chapter 3 - Growing E. coli cells
  • Chapter 4 - Genetic Engineering your E. coli cells
  • Chapter 5 - Extracting your engineered proteins
  • Chapter 6 - Processing Chemicals with Enzymes
  • Chapter 7 - Manually turning on genes in situ

This book contains more than a dozen Hands-on exercises, 160 pages of theory, Hands-on instructions, Going Deepers and Pro-tips. More than 65,000 words to get take you from knowing little to nothing about the subject of genetic engineering, to having basic university-level training. 

ISBN: 978-1-9994511-0-3

This book can be used at home, in the classroom, and the makerspace. This book can be used on its own, however, the real benefit is that you can do hands-on exercises. The book explains how to get set up and what equipment and ingredients you'll need for the hands-on exercises, so you don't have to worry about that now!

“This book is the perfect journey to learning the basics of engineering bacteria - From covering DNA to extracting proteins that you’ve engineered the bacteria to create and even control genetic circuits. These are the topics you need to know before you start innovating on your iGEM project”. Kristi Turton, undergraduate student at the University of Lethbridge in Canada, and advisor to the Lethbridge High School iGEM team.
