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.

    Futures in Biotech 38: It IS Easy Being Green!


    Talking green fluorescent protein with Dr. Martin Chalfie, 2008 Nobel Laureate in Chemistry...

    Host: Dr. Marc Pelletier
    Guest Host: Dr. Glen Ernstrom


    Guest:Dr. Martin Chalfie; Professor and Chair of the Department of Biological Sciences, Colombia University, New York, NY.

    Here is Part II with Martin Chalfie, 2008 Nobel Laureate in Chemistry. In this episode, he describes how he figured out that he could use the protein that causes a jellyfish to glow in the dark as a molecular tag, allowing us to track the life of a protein in a living cell. This is one of the most important tools in molecular biology, kind of at the scale of when Galileo invented the telescope ; ) Now we can watch the birth and movement of living proteins...
