 :: Posted by American Biotechnologist on 07-26-2011

George Church is one of the founders of the human genome project and continues to play an important role in the personal genome project, stem cell research and biofuel research. In this video, Dr. Sriram Kosuri, a Postdoctoral fellow in George’s lab at Harvard University discusses the Church lab’s approach to solving problems and developing technologies.

Below are some of my favorite lines/scenes from the video. What are yours?

  • “he’s not a labster-he’s just European”
  • “many labster spends at least 2hrs a day searching for journals with impact factors of less than 0.5″
  • labsters use “tofu mice” to avoid working with real animals

DNA Circuit Extravaganza

I absolutely LOVE being a biologist and thinking about all the things we can do with DNA!

Here’s a video by Lulu Qian and Erik Winfree of the DNA and Natural Algorithms group at Caltech explaining how DNA gate architecture is suitable for practical synthesis of large-scale circuits involving possibly thousands of gates.

For more information see their open-access paper A simple DNA gate motif for synthesizing large-scale circuits.
