Soap Box: Do-It-Yourself Biology

Prof. Natalie Kuldell and Reshma Shetty PhD '08 are at the forefront of new tools in biological engineering that allow thousands of citizen scientists of all backgrounds to build custom bacteria and other simple organisms from off-the-shelf technologies and biological building blocks. In a salon-style discussion, participants debate the controversies around where this exploding field is heading, and what it means for biology education, medical research, and bio-industry.

A really interesting and novel topic with discussion expertly led by Robin Meisner.
