Artificial Gene Synthesis - Episode #6 of 5-Minute-Reviews - Generation Genome Media
With the rise of the new age of synthetic biology, we are quickly redefining how we look at life from a molecular standpoint. Our genetic code is becoming more malleable, opening the door to new innovations to solve some of the worlds problems. Artificial Gene synthesis involved chemically synthesize a strand of DNA base-by-base. It is not like the process in our body like polymerase chain reaction because it does not require a template strand. The first gene synthesis came around in the 1960s but the de novo synthesis has greatly improved since then with our vast knowledge about the human genome and epigenome. In this episode, I talk about the procedure and applications of artificial gene synthesis.

The Phototropic Human Genome: Solving World Hunger and Climate change - Episode #5 of 5-Minute-Reviews - Generation Genome Media
795 million people are malnourished worldwide. World hunger and climate change are huge problems alive today. If we are not feeding the world of 2019, how will we feed the world of 2050, and how will we prevent the effects of climate change when we have all of these people? Today I discuss a revolutionary idea on creating a phototropic human genome that will allow humans to produce food on their own.

6 Letter DNA: The New World of Synthetic Biology - Episode #4 of 5-Minute-Reviews- Generation Genome
All life has been founded upon the same 4 letters of our genetic code. Recently, scientists have been looking beyond that and seeing how they can synthetically produce base pairs to make semi-synthetic organisms. In this episode I describe a study that has produced the bases X and Y to produce new amino acids in microbes!
