US Science & Engineering Fair
From April 26-29 Genspace invited Mike Ellison and Doug Ridgway to demo their Genomikon system at the fair. We had a large corner booth, and the traffic was brisk. Besides Genomikon, we did bacteria painting which came out great. The fair drew an estimated 28,000 people from the Washington DC area. Most of them did not appreciate how cutting-edge it was for kids to splice together DNA constructs and transform bacteria in a public place, but all the staff from the American Society for Microbiology table stopped by to congratulate us!
