A twirling mesh of bright synthetic blue hands reaches out to me... Pictured are the contents of a biohazardous waste bin in our synthetic biology lab. Our research group focuses on engineering life and “programming” living cells such as E. coli, yeast, and stem cells. I was captivated by the colors in my delirium during a non-stop 36 hour experiment.
