Can Synthetic Biology Bridge the Protein Gap?
You’ve probably heard the numbers before, which usually play on estimates from the U.N. that call for the world’s population to grow from roughly 7.4 billion today to nearly 9.7 billion by the year 2050. Therefore, the argument goes, biotech will be needed more than ever to provide more with less. More cures. More food.
Notes on Multiplexing
If you’ve spent time around technologists these days, you’ve probably heard the phrase “design, build, test.” The main idea behind this mantra, borrowed from engineering disciplines, is that technological progress is made iteratively by stepping through this cycle. With a hypothesis in mind, one first designs an experiment, builds the experiment, and finally tests the hypothesis.
