Driving Big Ideas With Catalytic Science and Innovation
Tom Evans, Ph.D.
Executive Director of Research, New England Biolabs
Host: Jeffrey Blanchard
Big ideas such as long-read sequencing of whole genomes, widespread molecular diagnostics, and easily assembling a hundred kilobase fragment of synthetic DNA in a test tube have supplied goals for which to strive. Achieving these goals requires not only the single massive breakthrough, but also the equally important surrounding innovations that maximize the potential of that idea. This talk will cover some of the less well known, but catalytic, innovations that have had surprisingly large impacts.
