Cancers Genomes and their Implications for Curing Cancer (by Bert Vogelstein, JHU)

The full lecture title is "Cancers - Their Genomes, Microenvironments, and Susceptibility to Bacteria-based Therapies" by Bert Vogelstein. The Johns Hopkins Center for Biotechnology Education and the Department of Biology in the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences hosted the American Society for Microbiology's Conference for Undergraduate Educators (ASMCUE) on the Homewood campus. Bert Vogelstein gave the closing plenary lecture, "Cancers - Their Genomes, Microenvironments, and Susceptibility to Bacteria-based Therapies". He teaches at John Hopkins University.

ASMCUE, now in its 18th year, is a professional development conference for approximately 300 educators. Each year, its steering committee organizes a program that offers access to premier scientists in diverse specialties and to educators leading biology education reform efforts.

WIll Wright and Jill Tarter - two personal hero's of mine. Stumbled upon this on the site  (a great science website and magazine if you do not know it). Who ever had the idea to put these two across from one another at a dinner table and have them talk on Spore, evolution and the evolution of AI - thank you. Watch and enjoy.

Foundations of synthesis and design in Synthetic Biology

Great video!


Lecture by

J. Chris Anderson
Assistant Professor of Bioengineering
University of California, Berkeley


"The advent of next-generation sequencing and emerging technologies for DNA fabrication will provide lower-cost solutions to the limiting problem of reading and writing genetic programs. To capitalize on this technological potential, new approaches to design, analysis, and debugging are required. Ultimately, the combination of these developments will enable new applications in genetic engineering such as cellular therapeutics, new materials, and sustainable bioenergy and chemical production. I will describe our efforts to identify new design principles in synthetic biology, construct therapeutic bacteria and genetic manipulation systems, and computationally encapsulate engineering knowledge to predict better genetic designs and quantify risk."
