Details

Ryan Hammond (who gave our very first lab meeting back in the fall of 2015!) is back with more exciting extensions of his project and he wants some help! He is working on developing yeast-grown sensors for estrogen and other hormones. This is wonderful for furthering his own work but has some great implications of using it to test samples from the local enviroment, water, food, etc! He is (and BUGSS is) also looking for people to come build a spectrometer, which will require laser cutting, soldering small chips, and other maker skills/learning. Note: this will be the planning session for the build. PLEASE JOIN US! This is a great chance to either 1) Be a part of a fun ongoing citizen science project 2) Build a very useful tool for the lab (or your own) and gain experience doing so.
