Re: The Biobricks blots binder
I read that Forbes article as well, from a link in R.Vidal's openwetware blog. I just can't wait for them to be able to release it... Heck, I want to help them out in some way if I could, if only it wasn't for my crippling ignorance of the field in general...
Anyway, what we'll be needing soon would be local chapters of synthetic biology meetups that can form projects and introduce people to the methodology and tools of synthetic biology... And possibly some sort of off-the-shelf tutorial, from O'Reilley or wikiversity.
The article and related collection on the Forbes webpage is well worth a read. Here's the link in case anyone's interested.http://www.forbes.com/2008/08/13/do-it- ... _land.html
