Adventures in Synthetic Biology


From Nick via a blog via Nature I found a comic book about synthetic biology by the people over at the MIT synthetic biology working group. The comic depicts the adventures of a child learning how to make biological devices with the help of a good looking lady in a lab-coat. I sort of wish I had that awesome DNA injector for my own adventures in synthetic biology, but I'm glad my bacteria don't have eyes.

Did you see the page where the bacteria starts to produce some gas (maybe even H2) and jsut explodes? Sensless violence against bacteria and killing them for our amusement, what kind of person would do that? Why, why!

If only he spent more time doing science than making (lame) comics he wouldn't be running around the country begging his girlfriend to help him get tenure...too soon?
