Biological Engineering Collaboratory Seminar Series

Hi Everybody,

The Biological Engineering Collaboratory is pleased to share details of an online seminar series, to run between September and December 2020, featuring some of its members. The format is something of an experiment to encourage discussion. Each of the speakers has recorded a short video by way of introducing the topic of their seminar, and inviting your participation. You are free to watch these videos and then register to join a zoom-mediated conversation with the speaker.
The first of the conversations is scheduled for this coming Friday, 4th September, and full details concerning the dates and times, the videos, abstracts, and how to register can be found at

The list of speakers and the titles of their talks can be found below:

Julia Bursten and Catherine Kendig - Growing Knowledge: Epistemic Objects in Agricultural Extension Work
Alok Srivastava - No Colligation Without Commensuration - How Torricelli & Chargaff successfully bound phenomena through measurement and thus bound facts through concept
Mieke Boon - Analyzing Epistemic Strategies in Re-Using Data – A Case-Study of Traditional Scientific Research in Bioprocess-Engineering
Janella Baxter - When is it Safe to Edit the Human Germline? Conceptual and Practical Issues
Robert Meunier - Host organism vs model organism
