We've rescheduled our talk with a premier genome engineer, Pete Carr, who will come speak with us tomorrow. Pete has done remarkable work in the MIT Media lab as part of the Center for Bits and Atoms, and has collaborated with George Church at Harvard Medical School on an ambitious genome rewriting project called "Re.coli." In advance of his talk tomorrow, please spend one hour looking at the following review article.
Also, before Friday, please add some thoughts to the class blog. This will be the fourth of 6 entries you'll make this term.
