I work in the Walsworth group at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. I've had an interest in biology and biophysics in general for some time, but was turned on to synthetic biology after hearing a presentation about the Brainbow work Dr. Jean Livet did as a postdoc with the Lichtman group here at Harvard. I learned about OpenWetWare shortly thereafter from google searches on the subject and from Dr. Livet. I'm currently finishing a PhD in atomic, molecular and optical physics, but I have some ideas for ways in which to develop passive and addressable DNA memory registers, and would like to bounce them off the synthetic biology community.
