I am a graduate student finishing up my PhD in the Laboratory of Lloyd Greene at Columbia University. I also teach the class Neurobiology of Development and Disease at the Science Honor Program at Columbia University. OpenWetWare caught my attention in a writeup on DIY, howebrew biology in New Scientist magazine.
