Coming Soon!!!

This netcast explores the rapidly changing world of biotech, with a penchant towards getting a better understanding of who we are and where we are going. The living world will soon be a true substrate for engineering. Our world will change, and so will we. 
We bring a first hand account from the scientists that are moving us into this new technological era: the era of biotech.

    FiB Episode 009 - Ed Delong on Metagenomics

    Dr. Ed Delong explores the seas for novel genes and genomes...

    Guest: Dr. Edward F. Delong, Professor, Division of Biological Engineering & Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at MIT

    Our guest, Dr. Ed Delong, studies complex microbial communities in the Pacific ocean off the coast of Hawaii. In our discussion, he explains how genomics not only reveals important details on the nature of these marine microbes, but can also uncover genetic, biochemical, and even metabolic information with great potential for the development of new technologies, providing novel building blocks for synthetic biologists or genetic engineers. While seeking a better understanding of life in the oceans, Delong is extending our knowledge of the living world and discovering new genes in a way that is not unlike combing the tropical rainforests for new species.

    I would like to point out that we record these netcasts using Skype, and the bandwidth at MIT is either pretty slim, or heavily abused. So at one point we switch over to the phone lines, which actually worked out pretty well.

    And also thanks to the Band Gunther from Cyclone Records for the permission to use their song Wrecking Ball as a theme for this episode of FiB!

      The process of writing and reading is very necessary and everlasting for the human BEngs. Research work the literature is produced and it is due to the skills of writing. The training is given in the tier of the graduation.
