Journal Club - "Towards synthesis of a minimal cell"

We’re kicking off our first session with a fun paper from Anthony Forster and George Church, speculating on the steps required before Synthetic Biologists can create a cell from scratch. Robbie Oppenheimer will briefly present the paper, some historical context and interesting work since publication, in order to stimulate open discussion about this exciting possibility! It’s anticipated that everyone who comes along will read the paper before arriving 6:30pm, TONIGHT (January 21st), on Level 2 at the Rex Richards Building off South Parks Road. Free drinks and nibbles!
