My job is pretty cool. After a month and a half of guessing what two of my workmates had been slaving away on – they weren’t allowed to talk about it – I was invited to a press launch.
It had a live dance routine.
That’s pretty cool.
The project was the launch of ENCODE, which happened at the Science Museum a few weeks ago. It is a major effort to investigate and explore the human genome, trying to go beyond reams and reams of base pairs to find actual function. You might have heard about it; this is an excellent overview.
Anyway, I got to sneak around taking a few pictures from the launch. It was impressive.
I’m going to try to upload my last month or so of pictures soon… promise!
