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 60: Do You Come To This Cave Often?

    Host: Marc Pelletier

    Guests: Dave Brodbeck, Ph.D., Andre Nantel, Ph.D., Vincent Racaniello, Ph.D., and George Farr, Ph.D.

    In this episode, a panel of scientists discuss recent stories including face recognition in primates, a new cure for HCV, changing the genetic code from three to four bases, and lastly, interspecies breeding between modern humans and neanderthals…

    Papers Discussed:

    Adachi, I., Chou, D.P., and Hampton, R.R. (2009). Thatcher effect in monkeys demonstrates conservation of face perception across primates. Curr Biol 19: 1270–1273. 

    Gao, M. et al. (2010). Chemical genetics strategy identifies an HCV NS5A inhibitor with a potent clinical effect. Nature 465: 96–100.

    Gibson, D.G. et al. (2010). Creation of a Bacterial Cell Controlled by a Chemically Synthesized Genome. Science .

    Green, R. et al. (2010). A Draft Sequence of the Neandertal Genome. Science 328: 710–722.

    Neumann, H., Wang, K., Davis, L., Garcia-Alai, M., and Chin, J.W. (2010). Encoding multiple unnatural amino acids via evolution of a quadruplet-decoding ribosome. Nature 464: 441–444.

    Citation for the papers mentioned would be great, especially the HCV paper. Thanks.

    "This would be considered unacceptable professional behavior in any organization, but for an attorney working in the White House to have engaged in this type of deception, this should probably be grounds -Ferrari designer sunglassesfor his termination."
    This, of course, assumes the ethics and integrity of those making these decisions. (Cue wild laughter.)
