Science+Art+Design Workshop-GMO: Food Testing

Learn how GMOs are designed, view artworks that interrogate the Anthropocene, test food products, and discuss new technologies, such as CRISPR. During this lab, you will test a food product of your choice for DNA markers, which indicate if the food was made from genetically- modified plant materials. Attendees may be asked to bring in a small amount of food product they are interested in testing. Techniques: DNA extraction and purification, PCR, and Gel Electrophoresis. 

Sponsored by The Department of Natural Sciences & Mathematics, The Provost Office, and The New School's Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts.
