The study of viral ecology is taking major leaps forward with the use of long-read sequencing and viral metagenomics. On this webinar we discuss how MinION technology is bringing scientists closer to high-throughput single-virus genomics from environmental samples.
Introducing our new webinar series, The Genome Spot. Each month we’ll be picking the brains of some of the leading researchers, to uncover some of the key movements, challenges and solutions in the field.
The Mayo Clinic’s David Smith, talks about science fiction writer, Nancy Kress, whom he thinks is not only a great storyteller, but is also a genius in how she demonstrates how genetics can alter society within her novels.
Valentine’s Day is around the corner and whether we like it or not, scientists have done research on that too. Can science be applied to love?
The Mayo Clinic’s David Smith discusses how Hollywood under-utilize, or so horribly mangle, good science fiction material.
David tells us about some of the movies he saw as a young boy, that also helped to shape him into the very strange person that he grew up to be.
