Biotech Basics

Since its founding, HudsonAlpha has striven to explain scientific discoveries clearly, free of technical jargon. The end-goal? Citizens who understand the implications and application of life science research, without requiring a dictionary or translator. Neil Lamb, Ph.D., Vice President for Educational Outreach, authors an ongoing series of articles for the HudsonAlpha newsletter. Each highlights a key concept, tool or technique important to the field of biotechnology.
