This has been something I've wanted to start for this project for some time, but never got started. Now that we are starting the 3rd year of this project, and it continues to grow in size and scope, a blog seems the appropriate way to document all that we are doing.
Over the past 2 years of working with the biotechnology students at BECHS to help them develop their recombinant protein company, Falcon Biomanufacturing, we've learned a lot. The students have been amazing and accomplish way more than I ever could have hoped. The primary impediment to their progress has been the fact that they are 2 hours away which makes it hard to keep up with their progress and offer useful and timely feedback. So this year we're going to try something new. We're going to ask the students to blog about what they're doing. By adding their blogs post to our weekly Google Hangout lab meetings, and our monthly site visits, we'll be able to better track everyone's progress.
So my initial blog post is all about their blog posts, or at least to provide links here to their blogs.
