    Cattle Genome Research Leads the Way with DNA

    For many people, their first brush with DNA was Jurassic Park. Today, areas of life untouched by genetics are rarer than a dinosaur petting zoo. A perfect example is the Genome Alberta project to develop more accurate genomically-enhanced breeding values for traits critical to the commercial cattle industry.

    A visit to Micropia - a new museum of the invisible in Amsterdam

    If I were to ask you where in the world you would expect to find a museum dedicated to microorganisms, you would probably guess Holland since that is the country of Antonie van Leeuwenhoek. He is known to most every school student as the Dutch lens grinder who discovered what he called animalcules, and is considered the ‘father of microbiology’ in introductory biology texts. Arriving at Schiphol airport, I made my way to the baggage hall and there on the wall was a massive advertising poster beckoning me to visit the new museum showing the invisible, Micropia. As I awaited my luggage, I quickly connected to the WiFi and visited their website. “That’s where I’m going to spend my day in Amsterdam” I declared.

    We're trying something new in this blog post that we hope will be the first of many. Arranging a full lab tour for the public isn't an easy thing to manage with limited time and resources on our part to co-ordinate things and on the part of the lab which has to make special arrangements. However with the help of some new technology we can bring the tour to you - in a 360 degree video.
