spiderman captain america superman hulk and others
Spiderman, Captain America, Superman, Hulk, and others…
  • Allthese superheroes could hypothetically be created through bioengineering
  • How? Just wait and see.

Me
  • Born in Columbus, OH
  • Lived in Ohio, North Carolina, Colorado, Arizona, and California
  • Currently 18
  • Went to Desert Vista High School
  • Go to U.C. Berkeley with intended majors of Bioengineering and Computer Science
  • Music, Sports, and Videogames
what is bioengineering
What is Bioengineering?
  • The application of engineering principles to various biological systems
    • Designing prosthetics
    • Imaging of organs
    • Protein engineering
    • Tissue Regeneration
    • Genome analysis
areas
Areas
  • Bioinformatics
  • Biomechanics
  • Bioimaging
  • Tissue Engineering
  • Biomedicine
  • Synthetic Biology
some basic principles
Some Basic Principles
  • The Genome
  • DNA/RNA
  • Proteins
dna and rna
DNA and RNA
  • Deoxyribonucleic Acid and Ribonucleic Acid
  • DNA: A-T, G-C
  • “Life’s Program”
  • Code’s for certain proteins and how much of each should be made
amino acids
Amino Acids
  • The building blocks of proteins
  • 26 natural amino acids
proteins
Proteins
  • Primary, Secondary, Tertiary
  • They perform a multitude of functions in your body, not just building muscles and whatnot
  • Enzymes can help digest food, cut DNA, get rid of toxins, etc…
some methodology
Some Methodology
  • PCR
  • Transformation
  • Electrophoresis
  • Bacteria Incubation
  • Computer Modeling
transformation
Transformation
  • Putting plasmids in bacteria so they can perform a certain function
plasmids
Plasmids
  • Circular DNA
  • Great way to add DNA to E. coli
plasmid cutting and creation
Plasmid Cutting and Creation
  • Special Enzymes cut DNA at certain points.
  • DNA with sticky ends will automatically combine with other DNA with complimentary ends
so how can bioengineering make superheroes
So How Can Bioengineering Make Superheroes?
  • Modify specific genes of humans
  • Splice in genes of other species (for example, in the case of Spiderman, you would need to add the genes of a spider)
