As I mentioned in the last post, I'm currently doing a two-week course in synthetic biology. Along with scientists and engineered there are also a group of design students here from London. It's been really amazing so far, seeing things from different peoples points of view, it really gives a new perspective on things. And of course it is very useful to find out just how much other disciplines are aware of what happens in moleular biology.
One of the design students (you can find her website here) made an amazing video, just exploring and explaining genetic engineering and it's uses. I particularly like the bit about classification, although the little animated bacteria is fun too. It's definately worth a watch:
