Cells: A Genetic Blueprint or Molecular Machines?

Cells: A Genetic Blueprint or Molecular Machines?

In this episode, Tim and Max interview two MIT professors for a live event with Taste of Science Boston. Taste of Science is a nationwide science communication festival that brings scientists into bars and cafes to talk about their research with the public and answer questions in a friendly, casual atmosphere. The GLiMPSE team collaborated with Taste of Science to turn one of their Boston events into a live GLiMPSE episode. Many thanks are due to the Taste of Science Boston team, and to Nightshift Brewing for kindly hosting us.
