CRISPR Genome Editing: The Musical
This great talk will be all about CRISPR, from its history to how it’s a winner. But there’s a twist! The whole time will be spent in song or in rhyme. CRISPR genome editing took the field by storm, infiltrated labs making the field transform. Adding to the science we loved it, we were grinning. We saw its brilliance and the field is now winning. There’s a lot more in store for all who like beer and are science-y.
How Do You Measure Clouds on Mars to inform Climate Models?
One of the major open areas of climate modeling is the net effect of clouds. Clouds are very good at moving energy around and affect local temperatures—during the day they make it cooler but at night they make it warmer.
The work I do uses images created from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) Compact Reconnaissance Imaging Spectrometer for Mars (CRISM) and sophisticated math to locate and measure the amount of water in martian clouds over an entire martian year.
