On “Breakthrough” Journalism

Breakthrough Time-Travel Vehicle to Rectify your Past: Coming soon to GooHoo auto dealers! Reading popular science stories in the news, it is impossible to avoid encountering an ever expanding list of scientific or medical “breakthroughs.” Breathless reporters drink the Kool Aid so often, it’s surprising that there is not an Continue reading

AMRITA Project: In vivo genomic engineering

Re-engineering adult animals and humans to overcome aging requires safe and efficient tools to allow introduction of synthetic biology circuits and programs.  The simplicity of CAS9/CRISPR to introduce DNA into defined chromosomal locations, delete unwanted DNA, create artificial transcription factors and inhibitors, as well as directed chromatin remodeling complexes promises Continue reading

Regeneering and Rejuveneering

We would like to introduce to new engineering disciplines: “Regeneering” and “Rejuveneering.” Regeneering uses biotechnology and synthetic biology to engineer regenerative processes into cells and organisms. Rejevuneering uses biotechnology and synthetic biology to engineer rejuvenative processes into cells and organisms. Please like and share on social media:
